My family and I watched Mother India, a documentary from Word Entertainment.
This is a documentary that strikes your soul and helps you see parts of the world in a new light.
Mother India examines the plight of orphaned children in the nation of India. There are over 31 million orphans in India, which will soon become the world’s largest nation.
31 million children have either lost their parents or run away because of abuse and torture. Their circumstances are certainly heartbreaking. With drug use, abuse from the police and others, these children have almost no place to turn. And they have no hope.
Watch the trailer:
When three Americans journey to India to discover more about these orphans, they discover a group, much like a family, of twenty-five abandoned kids living near the train station, and just outside of their hotel.
Joining them on the streets, these film makers follow their lives, experiencing their hardships with them, and being welcomed by them.
In the process, they discover two young children, Polayya and Koteswari, who have a chance to escape this life and start anew. Working closely with Harvest India, these film makers succeed in providing these two children with a second chance.
I highly recommend that you watch this film. But be ready for your heart to break for these children. And after you watch, get involved in helping raise awareness and become a part of the solution. You can sponsor kids in India, and serve in other ways with groups like 31million.org.
Jump in. get involved. You’ll be glad you did.
