Serving Girls At-Risk in India

As captured by the Academy Award winning film Born Into Brothels, the children of the Calcutta red-light districts are some of the most stigmatized in their own country. They have little hope of escaping their mothers' fate or creating another type of life.

Buntains’ Calcutta Mission is founded on the work of missionaries Mark and Huldah Buntain, who over 53 years established a vast network of ministries to holistically serve the spiritual and physical needs of others.

On Monday, November 16th at 7:00 pm at Northwest University: HSC104 (Building 18 on this map: http://www.northwestu.edu/tours/images/campus_map.pdf), Huldah Buntain and Amitabh Singh will show part of the film mentioned above and share about their ministry in India. Their ministry includes hospitals and clinics, over 100 rural and city schools, a daily feeding program for more than 25,000 people, and their latest expansion, Hope House, a safe haven for at-risk girls to live and have the chance to fulfill their dreams.
