Dr John Joseph Foundation, India
Since beginning work in India Onside Ministries has partnered with the Dr John Joseph Foundation, an organisation set up to help underprivileged children in Chennai. Chennai is a thriving city on the Bay of Bengal but with huge social problems and the gap between rich and poor ever widening. Our teams have visited the city a number of times and the slum areas in parts of Chennai are almost beyond words. The cramped conditions, lack of basic ammenities, oppresive heat and very little employment opportunities make life very difficult. Although only founded in 2008, the Dr John Joseph Foundation has been doing fantastic work, with their main focus being a home for children from the very poorest backgrounds, providing them with education, shelter, food and medical care and giving them a hope for the future. If you would like to support the work of this organisation, please follow the link opposite. All funds raised will go directly to the foundation, helping the poorest of the poor in Chennai.
