It’s amazing what God can do through a life to touch a whole community. This is the follow-up on what He is doing among the Untouchables in Mori, India. (You should read the 1st & 2nd articles first.)
At the memorial service for Subbamma, Solomon Darwin sensed that God wanted him to continue the work that his Grandmother had started. Although he now lives and works as a University Professor in the United States, Solomon built a school to replace Subbamma’s mud hut school. He then obtained the funding to build a state of the art modern hospital.

Subbamma’s School Today
They rejoice to see people from high castes starting to come to this new hospital. They are coming because it is much better than the public ones. It is completely staffed by Christians and Christ is the center of the Hospital and the school.
Solomon told us that Untouchables have darker colored skin and it’s considered unlucky to even see one. Persecution still exists today. They are denied an education and even medical help. I love that our God chose a broken woman to be the catalyst of healing between castes.
I asked Solomon what needs they had. He told me that they welcome Doctors & medical staff who would like to volunteer for short-term missions. He said they are quite close to the peaceful banks of river Godavari and the Bay of Bengal.
There is housing for visiting Doctors, dentists, technician, nurses or administrators.
He also said they are looking for funding for the hospital until it is self-supporting
in the next year or so.
I watched a delightful DVD about their school and was impressed with how well behaved the children are. There are over 200 students in the school. One of the students wants to be a missionary in the Middle East.
If God is putting it on your heart to help this wonderful ministry their contact information is at their website – hope-for-people.org. On their website you can pay for a surgery, sponsor a child in their school for $28 a month, or even pay for an Indian Doctor at $45 a month. Thanks for considering helping this wonderful work.
