The devastating floods in Kerala, the worst in the state in nearly a century, have left thousands in dire straits. Over 445 people died within a fortnight, while at least a million people were evacuated.
Your action and generosity have helped touch 500 those displaced families in the poorest communities where we work through our partner on the ground in Kerala, Faith Mission. The money raised has helped provide daily supplies like grocery, toiletries, water, and clothes to these families affected by the flood in Kerala. Volunteers at the Faith Mission centre tirelessly and selflessly assisted in these relief efforts.
There’s still a lot more to be done as lives are rebuilt after the flood. This will take time, effort and funds. Do continue to support the work of relief and rehabilitation as we show our humanity in times of strife.
A new school year. Fresh new books, new uniforms, new shoes, new class, new hopes. Remember that excitement when you prepared to return to a new school year? Help give a child that same excitement. It takes Rs 2,500 per child for a set of books, uniforms and shoes.

Football fever is running high across India with the hugely successful Indian Super League. Our children got a taste of the excitement at the under-8 and under-12 tournament organised by Goa home team FC Goa. What’s more, they even managed to bag some awards at the tournament. Professional football coaching is available to all El Shaddai children and our boy’s team regularly takes part in state-level competitions organised by the Goa Football Association.
An awareness program was held to educate young girls and women on the Stages of Adolescence, the physical, psychological and emotional changes that occurs and the various aspects of health and nutrition that they need to be aware and manage. We would like to thank the resource person Dr. Cruginha Coutinho for conducting this programme.
El Shaddai is not just a charity I support anymore. We’ve all become friends.
It’s creating a wave of change, it’s changing a generation that would have been struggling with no education. It’s taking these children away from that and putting them on a different path and altering the future for their children. These children will grow up to be grateful for what they have, and it will be passed on. And that makes me so happy. I’ve just gained another family. And another home. I’ve got a second home.
“There is often no way of knowing how God will reward us for our efforts. What counts is that to sow the seeds add water to them and let the lord produce the results.
“I really appreciate the splendid work your doing to educate orphans, children from the slums and those from economically backward families. I had an opportunity to visit your school in 2004 and it has since then come to my knowledge that your school has grown in strength and knoweledge.May God enable you to continue with your dreams of braining joy to the downtrodden children.”
