Metropolitan Dr. K.P. Yohannan
“Children in underdeveloped countries are often the victims of cruel exploitation of various kinds,” explains the Metropolitan in his book, No Longer a Slumdog. “Those who end up on the streets are quickly picked up…and forced into a begging ring or other hard labor.”
Metropolitan Dr. K.P. Yohannan’s desire is to be “a part of rescuing these boys and girls from a future of being blinded, maimed, disfigured or forced into the life of a street beggar.” Providing homes to street children through Asha Grih is one of the ways that Believers Church is fulfilling this goal.
