Hospitality and Hope
Locally we support and are heavily involved with the work of Hospitality and Hope.
Hospitality and Hope started providing hot meals and support to those in need. They also run a food bank that provides emergency food parcels to inviduals and families experiencing financial crises.
Living Waters Church supports the Machilipatnam Christian Orphanage in India. The orphanage has been serving homeless and orphaned children for over 30 years. Machilipatnam was severely impacted by the tsunami on 26 December 2004 and as a direct result, 110 children lost their parents and are now cared for by the orphanage. The financial burden placed on the orphanage is significant as they try to feed, clothe, educate and spread the gospel among the children.
The remaining children in the orphanage are considered to be the untouchable social class from
villages where literacy rates are less than 15%. The orphanage offers education, shelter and love to the most vulnerable.
In 2007 the orphanage built a primary school and in 2008 it purchased land for a secondary school through donations made by churches in the UK. Further donations are now required to build the secondary school, accommodation, catering facilities, and a church.
The orphanage desperately needs funding and requires about £10,000 each year to care for the children. If you would like to donate to this work, please contact LWC or come to our breakfast club every Wednesday from 9:30-11:30am. All profits from this are given to the orphanage.
Please support us in showing the love of Jesus to those who have nothing.
