Mission Statement

To assist the rural community of Andrha Pradesh, South India especiallty orphaned children and the destitute elderly



My name is Pastor Ratnam and I am from Vellatur, Guntur District, Andrah Pradesh, India.

With God's help I run an orphanage here in rural India ably supported by my loving wife and a small team. When I started 8 years ago we had no money and only a vision. To start with we housed 3 homeless children in our 1 bed straw hut and now we are able to provide a loving home for 60 children in our orphanage. We have also completed many successful missions for the poor and rural people in our area e.g. tsunami re -development. We have done a lot but not enough. It is my mission to be able to house 500 homeless and abandoned children and by the grace of God I will achieve it.

Through the power of the Internet we have been fortunate to attract some visitors from abroad one of whom has kindly volunteered to help me in my mission by being a contact in London (and by helping write this message!). If you would like to contact him, his name is Chris and his number is 07974 979340.

We have benefited from visitors coming to stay with us here at our orphanage spending their time teaching, singing and playing with the children. Would you like to join us? We would love to welcome you here.

My wife and I are able to provide love and support for the children but we desperately need funds to continue our work with the rural poor of South India and we would be most grateful for any monetary donations or professional assistance that you may be able to contribute. Our children love it when we have visitors from abroad so if you would like to come and visit for any length of time please contact me. You are a sure to receive a hearty welcome!

Pastor P Ratnam,

Good Samaritan Orphanage,



P.S If you have any questions or would like to chat please call 0091 98 66882124

P.P.S If you are wondering why my English is so good - its because my English friend (and sponsor of 2 children at the orphanage) is helping me to write this ad - Sorry if my subsequent e-mails are not written in such good English!
