Udupi: Fifteen members of the Rotaract Club visited the Krishna Dham Orphanage at Laxmi Nagar, near Udupi, as part of their Community Contact Program (CCP) on March 17.

Apart from being an orphanage, Krishna Dham is also an adoption center. Couples are encouraged to adopt the babies in the orphanage. Megha Nayyar, a second year in Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT), said she appreciated the initiative. “I think what Krishna Dham is doing for these unfortunate kids are amazing. Not only are they providing a good home for the children, but they are also encouraging people to adopt them. It is very evident that those children need love and care. By looking out for permanent loving homes, they are securing the child’s future,” she said.

The orphanage is currently home to seven infants and three children. The two-hour visit involved a lot of interaction with the residents of the orphanage. Neha Nirmal, a second year student from MIT said, “At first I felt utmost sympathy, as some of the babies were physically challenged. But as I started playing with them I enjoyed it so much. If not anything major, we at least want to create awareness about the existence of this orphanage.”

Anaya Mishra, a third year student of Mechatronics at MIT said, “The kids here are fortunate to have three people taking care of them and a home to stay in. All the caretakers run after the children to make sure their needs are fulfilled.”
