Mahatma Gandhi Home for the Old Aged in Pondicherry

All the proceeds from the sales of the book will go to the Mahatma Gandhi Home for the Old Aged in Pondicherry.

And it is not just an Old Aged Home: it was started by Albert a good friend, in 2006. Albert was moved deeply by the old people living on the streets in India. Ending up there begging and slowly dying because they did not have family to look after them. He ended up creating a home which offers care, food, shelter in a loving environment for 22 – 25 people.

Albert managed because of his charismatic presence to attract donors and funds to keep the home running for all these years. Last year Albert passed away and since his departure the funds are slowly drying up.

At the moment the home is run by Albert’s adopted son Royal and a team of good and caring people.
