This is Eraiyur Agni Community
Centre in the year 1998. A small thatched shed built for worship
services on Sundays. Eraiyur is a small village with 700 families
situated in the outskirts of Chennai at Kancheeputam district.
All the people groups belong to the Hindu community. The socio
- economic status of the people groups are very poor. The hygienic
conditions of the community are very poor, no toilet facilities
and the children are not getting proper education and care. There
are number of poisonous snakes and many die of snake bite. Many
women have died due to improper medical care and to prenatal and
postnatal women. Many babies die due to mal-nutrition, if at all
they need hospitalization, they have to take a walk upto 20 kms
to reach the town hospital. They have no proper transport facilities.
There is a great need of helping the helpless and the unfortunates
who dwell in the villages.
With this start, it was realized
that there was a chance for unexpected development so it urged
us to venture in the area of coaching center for children, called
Havana Club, educating children through studies and knowledge
of God and Maternity Clinic so as to help, encourage and motivate
them for the development of the community.
||By God’s grace we recently built
Agni Community Centre in the year 2001 at a size of 40/30
square feet (2400 square feet) to a cost of 800,000 Indian
rupees. We appointed a pastor (Mohan) who did a wonderful
work and he brought as much as 150 people to Christ in 3 years
time. And more people are added since then. Now about 200
people in this village come on Sundays for prayers and worship
in Agni Community Centre.
This is the Maternity Clinic which
is on the construction process, it is built with 2 ward rooms,
doctor room, labor room with attached toilets and a public toilet.
This cost nearly 600,000 Indian rupees. We require medical equipments
for maternity clinic. We require experienced nurses and Doctors
who can visit the patients twice a week. If you are interested
to work, help, assist or serve the poor and the needy, please
write to us or call us. The whole project would probably be opened
by January 2005. We need to buy medical equipments, please pray
and support as the Lord leads you. As little as you give, you
can help us to serve the Lord in action.
The white building is the maternity
clinic as you see it’s almost completed. The brown one is
on the construction process. This is the nurse quarters built
with two rooms and a kitchen and an attached bathroom. This estimates
to 200, 000 Indian rupees.
We are looking for churches
and organization or individuals that could partner with us and
support our work in this village through prayers or moral support
as we bring the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ in action.
