Welcome to the ACC sponsorship E-News

In this issue we would like to focus on the orphanage we support in India -FFC.  Additional sponsors are always needed. Please spread the word and encourage family and friends to sponsors a child.


Families for Children (FFC), Podanur, India   

We continue to receive regular newsletters from Families for Children, which we pass on to our sponsors. FFC is a large orphanage caring for more than 500 children from newborns to teenagers. Policy is never to turn away a child in need.  


School in Podanur

Although our involvement with this home is modest, every dollar donated is desperately needed, and greatly appreciated. Our sponsors help FFC to feed, clothe, offer therapy and medical assistance to unwanted and abandoned children.  FFC is establishing a Centre for training young adults with special needs in skills that will be unique and marketable. The new House of Hope Training Centre is being built on land bought many years ago by donors.

The elementary school is now registered, however too many obstacles and increased regulations prevent FFC from registering a secondary school.The children were very excited to show their new uniforms and wear shoes all day for the first time.

Two days a week they wear an impractical all-white ensemble and the other days are in green.


A new project has started at the FFC India site. Having decided to  produce their own honey in house, as well as make candles using the beeswax, staff members from FFC purchased a number of bee hives to get started. Below, Rema checks out one of the new hives.

The Special Care sections at the FFC India site have begun working on a new idea - making papier mache beads, covering them with Medleri silk and decorating them, and then stringing them together to form necklaces.
