India's huge population:

Did you know?

Did you know that there are more people living in India than the population of the whole of Africa and the whole of South America combined? India's population currently stands at approximately 1.15 Billion (2008). Take a look at the world outline map below and check out the relative land masses of the three continents, you will see that India is by far the smallest of the three but India's population is enormous in comparison to Africa and S. America.

More support to India:

Leprosy suffers receive more food supplies:
After a short prayer of thanks, this group of people who are suffering from leprosy are supplied with some rice, dall and oil so that they can cook their traditional curries. Mission International's plan is to find regular support for these folks so that they can receive food thus allowing them to live without begging on the streets. The long term plan is to put in place income generating projects which will allow them to produce enough income to live and look after their families.
