Children’s Home and Community in South India, continues the work that Amy Carmichael began in 1901.
'Amma' (Mother), as she was known to her large Dohnavur Family, gave fifty years of her life to rescuing babies and children from situations and backgrounds of extreme danger, until her death in 1951, aged eighty-three.
When God wants to do a new thing, He looks for someone with the same attitude as His Son, Jesus Christ – who was prepared to make Himself nothing, to humble Himself and to become obedient even to death. He found such a one in Amy Carmichael, a missionary in South India at the beginning of the 20th Century. Like her Lord, she was living with the people she had come to serve. With a small band of Indian Christian women she moved from place to place, preaching, teaching and healing, and many turned to the Lord. In 1901, God sent to her a seven-year-old girl who had escaped from a temple. Amy heard through her about the practice of dedicating little girls to the gods. Amy was moved by God to save these children from physical and moral danger.
She was to make a home for them (and boys also from 1918-1984) and to bring them up to know and serve the Lord Jesus Christ and be His witnesses. Many other family tragedies also put children's moral and physical safety at risk and the little ones who come to The Dohnavur Fellowship today, come with the same spoken or unspoken cry for protection on their lips. Our Unseen Leader, the Lord Jesus Christ, still says, "Let the little children come to me".
Our aim and objective is to provide a happy home and Christian upbringing for children whose own families are unable or unwilling to care for them and who are therefore in danger of exploitation, abuse or even death and to make known Christ’s love through our service to the people around us.
