Origin of the Children’s Home
This home was started by a loving mother Alice Thomas who lost her husband after a serious car accident. She reacted positively to this tragedy. Her compassionate heart was deeply moved when a female offender in desperation handed over her two year old son Anup in to the caring hands of Alice Thomas and begged her to look after him along with Alice’s two children, Neethi and Sumesh. This was the beginning of Divine Children’s Home. Alice’s caring work expanded in scope and now Divine Children’s Home is a sanctuary for many destitute children who are either orphans or whose parents are mentally or physically incompetent to look after their children. Most of these children attend school. The main source of income for Alice is the allowance that she gets from her sewing work and the help rendered by compassionate people.
