Krupa and his wife, Hannah, run Hannah Krupa Child Care Center. The center is located in the heart of a surrounding slum. It is designed to provide a safe place for kids in the community to come and find help with school work, a hot meal and the hear the gospel!
Hannah and Krupa run the center using money from Hannah's working salary, and support through incoming donations. Surrounding church families volunteer at the center or they donate financially toward the day to day costs.
Krupa also serves as a pastor of Hannah Krupa Memorial Church, and the families from this church also contribute to the needs of the center.
STEPS Children’s Home was opened in 2007 in Chennai, India, and started with 3 girls who were rescued from difficult circumstances. Today they are in a new home location – moved there in 2016 – and can house 19 girls. They seek to provide a safe, clean living condition for girls that are orphans, or vulnerable children, along with an education through high school. Most, if not all of the girls, attend Anita Methodist school in Chennai. STEPS also have 5-7 staff members who serve the girls and have been with them for several years.
Goal - $20,000
The Global Care Initiative is Lifeline's newest endeavor to provide resources to in-country teams and partners around the world! As our ministry serves in over 19+ countries through adoption and (un)adopted, our heart at Lifeline is to ensure that local believers are not only aware of the orphan care crisis in their community and what the gospel teaches regarding our involvement, but also are equipped to do the ministry the Lord has called them to do.
Through the Global Care Initiative, we are empowering the local church in each country by providing training, education, resources, and curriculum that they will be leading out in their own communities. The Global Care Initiative will provide the educational means to support our partners all over the world through our various ministries at Lifeline.
We are excited to have the opportunity to share specific ways you, your family or your church can come alongside these ministries! Your generosity will play a crucial role in the care of many vulnerable children around the world!
