Short essay for kids on Visiting Children’s Home. A few days ago, a friend took me to an orphanage. I thought it would be like the other orphanages where homeless children are kept and not treated very well. But I was in for a surprise. This was a happy home for children, totally different from the kind of institutions which are badly run.
There were about fifty children, from little babies to boys and girls of 12 to 14 years. The organiser was a serene-looking man. His wife was living with the children, taking care of every bit of the organisation. They were an ideal couple, with real love for children.
They narrated the story of their Home. When they had no children of their own, the sufferings of homeless children evoked sympathy in their hearts. They started this Home with three children in their small house. When the number grew, they started collecting donations.
Now the Home has long list of regular patrons. ‘Clean management’ makes the benefits go to the inmates in the form of comforts. Healthy food, good bedrooms, bathrooms, school, playground and amiable workers, and above all, the very affectionate ‘Father’ make this Home, a real home.
The organiser, Mr. Anthony is a very noble, magnanimous and charitable person. He often invites his patrons and donors to visit the Home. Every year he sends a General Report of its functioning, expansion programmes and financial commitments etc. to his patrons. The organisers have given their love to those homeless children. It gives them great pleasure to see them happy and satisfied.
I often think of the kind-hearted affectionate couple who loved those poor children like real parents, and pray to God to keep them hale and hearty for many years to come. I will not waste money in buying cakes and arranging big parties to celebrate my birthday. I will share my joys by sending money to this orphanage and request my relatives and friends also to do the same.
