About the local hosting organizationICYE India The New Ark Mission of India was started in the year 1997 by Mr. T. Raja. It is an organization solely dedicated to rescuing and rebuilding the lives of the destitute and dying people of the streets. The Home of Hope is a centre of the New Ark Mission of India.
About the volunteer workToday, the home accommodates and cares for more than 200 residents who have been rescued from the most inhumane and unhygienic circumstances. It is a place of solace and shelter for people who are suffering from AIDS, Cancer and Kidney failures besides many who are mentally challenged. These residents who were once disowned by their families and doomed to fend for them have found a new reason to live. These 170 residents would have been a statistic on the list of Bangalores unidentified dead if Raja had not reached them.
