Bihar is among the least developed states of India: people are poor and vulnerable to sickness and death. Hence, children who lost their parents, have to provide for themselves.

In this regard, AMURT started the construction of a Children’s Home in the village of Sakraili. First, we secured the land; thereafter, the construction work began.

In 2005, AMURT (International) bought land to build an orphanage. Due to difficult circumstances and limited funds the construction developed only slowly. In September 2007 the children’s home was finished and was inaugurated by Mr. Bhola Sah, programme director of AMURT(International) and Mr. Wilfried Mende, presidentof AMURT (International).

Today the building consists of two dormitories (one for girls, one for boys), a bathing and a washing room, a kitchen, a recreation room and a room for the two care takers. Today the home offers a place to 15 children, aged between 5 and 12. All 15 children are orphans.

From the school and the hospital that AMURT runs, the children also benefit from school education and health care.



There is a great need to offer more children this home care as they are deprived of basic human rights. Therefore the construction of additional shelters is and will remain one of our targets.
n the future, AMURT will continue to support the orphans of the new children’s home by providing them with daily needs.
