Personal Work: Stories: Rescued Boys of Bangalore
For the past 18 years John Kennedy Samson has made it his mission to rescue boys in Bangalore who have been abandoned in trash bins, city streets and on railroad tracks. He has brought these children, including those who suffer from a vast range of disabilities to Morning Star, the orphanage he created. Within the confines of this newly built center, children who were once malnourished and lacking any education are now provided the opportunity to go to school and eat three meals a day. Without financial support from the government, Morning Star and its director must continually worry how to provide for the 55 children who have come to call this orphanage their home.
