Product Description

Narrated by Grammy Award winner Rebecca St. James, Mother India: Life Through the Eyes of the Orphanis a compelling documentary capturing the life and stories of 25 abandoned and orphaned children living along the railway in southern India.

With over 31 million orphans in India, David Trotter and Shawn Scheinoha showed up hoping to find kids who would be willing to trust them enough to show them life through their eyes. What they didn't expect was to be warmly welcomed by a family of 25 children living along the railway.

Although telling the stories of the kids was their primary focus, David and Shawn were inspired to take action once they met two young siblings, Polayya and Koteswari. Having been forced to beg on behalf of their alcoholic parents, they escaped the abuse by boarding a train and eventually joining an unlikely 'family' of 25 other courageous kids. When presented with a second chance at life by a local children's home (Harvest India), will the older kids let the two little ones say 'yes' to a fresh start? Follow the adventure as we experience life through the eyes of the orphan. Widescreen. Approx. 49 minutes.

    We all know about the poverty in India, but this film puts a name and face to those who are suffering in a way I have never really noticed before. As you watch the film, you grow to care about these kids--some are adults now, but that makes it more tragic to realize what they have gone through to survive. During the filming of Mother India, the filmmakers were presented an opportunity to a tour of the Harvest India campus and children's home in Tenali. Suresh Kumar and his wife, Christina of Harvest India helped expedite matters, but it further heightened my awareness of the complexities involved in helping these children and the glimmer of hope that can be offered. You feel overwhelmed as you watch at the enormity of it all, but even helping one or two can make an impact on those who will need help in the future. It is always better to do something rather than nothing.

    This is not a film for young viewers. Some of the topics are drug abuse, sexuality, violence, and HIV/AIDS. You hear children talk of being used for sex, drug use is shown, and wounds from abuse. Nor is this a film aimed only at a Christian audience, but is intended to bring awareness to all about the plight of these kids. If your family, church, or organization are wanting to be involved with a ministry, watch this film and you will realize the needs to be met.

    - Sponsor a child.

    - Serve with organizations who are helping orphans in India.
