The plight of inmates of Zion Children Home has indeed moved many good Samaritans who have extended a helping hand to them. Till Tuesday evening, the organisation received monetary help to the tune of Rs. 2 lakh.

They were responding to a news item ‘High rents may leave them homeless’ published in these columns on Tuesday. The report highlighted the pecuniary problems faced by the Home and the possibility of 38 children being forced to vacate the premises as the organisers could not pay the rent.

“Employees, businessmen and others have called up to extend their support. Some have promised to send money and some have already sent. We are thankful to them,” said R. Ganesh Prabhu, pastor, who runs the home.
