We are in urgent need of helping my wife Naomi Withington out from going to jail in India. The charges against her are false, and we are working with our lawyers to keep her out from going to jail. The lawyer fees, filing fees, court fees are around $5000.We ask that you prayerfully consider her support.
Our Home of Hope Orphanage was suddenly taken by surprise Thursday morning when 20 people suddenly showed up at our campus early morning. Police with child welfare committee. They took all 40 of our children by force from us, saying because our home was not registered.
In 2010 we registered our ministry with the government, then in 2014 Child Wealfare Committee advised us to again register under JJAct. As we were an orphanage. So in June of 2014 we submitted all the paperwork. They told us we are doing good job, and continue. This went on for yrs, not registered certificate yet. Found out the site basily wanting money or a bribe. As that is how this gets done around here in India. We refuse to pay. As we are doing a service looking after the children, but they don't care. Then they show up and talk all all our kids always just like. That. Now they are after my wife as a case is open against her as she is the Chairperson/ President. There are so many other orphanages around 10 nearby in the distric like our and still running, but only ours was invaded.
