Charity information

Chiks (Children's Homes in Kerala State)

Chiks is a small but very active charity that supports some 200 children; every penny given for their benefit is spent on them and minimal expenses are met through fundraising events. The work started in the mid-1990s when a nun, formerly with Mother Teresa, joined with UK friend Robin Radley in setting up an orphanage. The other Homes followed and all the boys and girls receive total care and education, with the opportunity of training for a career. Often the children will have run away from cruelty or neglect - or desperately poor families, single-parent mothers and social and church workers arrive seeking long or short-term shelter for them.
