Gypsies in India
For centuries Gypsies (in India alone there are more than 40 million) have been hated, segregated, exploited, left uneducated and pushed to the edge of society. Sheltered by nothing but a few ragged tents, many children of Gypsy colonies have almost nothing to wear while suffering from malnutrition. Gypsies now hope for Christianity. Neither Hinduism nor the government have actually helped them. Through its branch in India, Contactions Foundation strives to help them out of their affliction, hunger, illness, unemployment, idolatry and illiteracy. The only way to do this is to meet their needs in love and to help them not only under a social aspect but also a spiritual one.
Due to the caste system those children live isolated in gypsy villages. That’s where they’re being cared for by Contactions. However, Contactions doesn’t exclude the parents of their responsibilities.
