The Shubh Sandesh Foundation is directed by Daniel Ponraj.
This ministry is one of the few organizations that has full-access to some of the most remote tribal villages, making them the primary source of relief during this time. They also have been called upon by the Indian government to assist in aid relief because of the reputation they have for being excellent resources for those who are hungry and in need. What a testament to the way Christ works through His people!
Krupa and his wife, Hannah, run the Hannah Krupa Child Care Center (a school and ministry center for vulnerable children in the area). Krupa also serves as pastor of Hannah Krupa Memorial Church.
Hannah and Krupa run the center for more than 100 children, using money from Hannah's working salary, and about $100 donated by the church each month. The children live in the surrounding slum and gather together every day at the center.
The Hannah Krupa Child Care Center relies on 35 church families that volunteer at the center or donate toward the day-to-day costs, and another five families that contribute to the church and ministry in other capacities.

STEPS Children's Home opened in 2007 with three girls who were rescued from difficult circumstances. Today, the ministry is in a new, larger space that can house 19 girls. STEPS seeks to provide a safe, clean living condition for the girls, along with helping provide an education through high school. Most of the girls, who are either orphaned or coming from vulnerable places, attend Anita Methodist school in Chennai, India. STEPS is managed by about seven staff members and the girls are 8-14 years old.
