| The Rosehill Evangelical Mission is located in the city of Rajahmundry, in the state of Andhra Pradesh, east-central India. It was founded by Rev. Joseph Babu, MA whose charitable work amongst people with leprosy and street children of the city is supported by founding director of Rosehill Instruments, Trevor Austin.|
In 2004 the foundation stone was laid on a site donated to the mission for a new free hospital and orphanage to accommodate the thirty-five orphaned children then in care. Work on the orphanage was completed in May 2009. Money collected and raised by various activities like carolling and concerts is forwarded to the mission to offer continued support for this project.
|Trevor Austin writes:|
"I received my first approach from Pastor Joseph from Rajahmundry in late 1998 because he needed additional financial help with the important work he was doing amongst orphans and widows in Andrah Pradesh, South India. As the years rolled by the relationship has developed. In March 2007, Rev. Charles Martin and I went out to see the orphanage in Gadala, which now accomodates more than 160 orphans and about 40 widows.
"The visit was life changing. The crying need encouraged us to overcome our shyness and be prepared to tell others, in the hope that some would see their way clear to help with the annual financial target. With each child costing £16.00 a month (we pay for their education as well as accomodation) and each widow £10.00 a month, we now need to raise upwards of £30,000 a year, so any contributions would be gratefully received. Perhaps you would care to sponsor an orphan or a widow?"
