There are more than 31 million orphaned children living in India.  Many of these young people are living in the streets, trying to survive day by day.  They are often abused and sick.  Many use drugs to numb the pain.

The film producers traveled to India hoping that a few street kids might spend some time with them and let them see life through the eyes of the orphan.  They were surprised and also heartbroken when they discovered a band of 25 children who lived together as a sort of patchwork family.

Through the film the visitors tell the story of these forgotten children - some even babies!  We see them beg for money at a train yard and learn that many have lost limbs underneath these very trains.  The police move them off the streets and often kick them or use sticks to speed the process along.  There is drug use, needle sharing, and as you would guess - disease sharing.

Among this group were two sibling street children who are practically babies - ages 3 and 7.  The directors and the other children work to get them a fresh start with a loving family that ministers to Indian orphans.

It was so moved by these sad stories.  The thought that there are so many more - thirty-one MILLION more - is almost impossible to comprehend.  The purpose of telling these tales is so that prayers and action will follow.

To begin, watch the DVD and share it with your friends.
