Meyer Boys' Home

Eluru, India | 3028

The „Meyer Children’s Home and Educational Society“ was founded in 1973 as a bright and visible sign for the long-time beneficial work of Paul and Hanna Meyer from Switzerland in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. When monsoon rains are too heavy the Godavari River regularly bursts its banks and overflows wide parts of the country. The area around the town of Eluru is also affected by such floods and the misery of the poor population is even increased. It is the children who are suffering especially hard.

Meyer Children’s Home was established to give sufficient and well-balanced food to the children as well as a good education. Christusträger-Waisendienst helped to enlarge the existing building and to bore a well. 50 boys are finding a home in this project. They live together in cheerful community and get accommodation, good care, food, clothing and education and are prepared for a responsible life in their country. A large compound belongs to the home where the boys can play and grow vegetables. Christian instruction for the boys is also very important for the warden.

Elementary as well as secondary school are in the vicinity of this home and can be reached easily by the children. This is necessary to give a very good education to the children as a solid foundation for their future life. This work is only possible because our friends support us with personal sponsorships and supply us with the necessary financial means.



Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
