India: Member organisation gives thanks for action led by children
Avvari Shouri, Executive Director of IDEAS Children Home Tiruvuru (a Pax Christi Member Organisation), recently posted a remembrance of an action from 2015 which benefited orphans associated with his organisation. Shouri links to a newspaper article which refers to "little angels", kids ranging in age from 5 to 10 years-old, who collected donations in the Trilochana Puram village for IDEAS orphans. Shouri writes how the action still amazes him today. The kids raised an amount of RS.7.829 (ca. 105€), stunning all of their teachers and the elders of the village, as well as Shouri. “I thank and appreciate the head mistress, Mrs. Atchbama, and the master, Mr. Dubbaku Karthik, and other teachers who motivated the kids to collect funds for IDEAS kids," Shouri wrote.
