As Najma of Happy Home put it: 'I belong to a Gujrati family. My father had an electrical goods shop (and) our shop was looted in (the) riots of 2002 and our house was burnt by the rioters. We were compelled to live in relief camps. The members of Zakat Foundation of India brought me (and my two sisters) along with other riot-effected children to Delhi and now I am living in Happy Home.'
'In Happy Home we are living like sisters and brothers. Now my family are the residents of Happy Home. If someone wants my photograph to help the poor (then) it is good. Time (does) not remain (the) same forever. One who is rich (can) one day become a beggar.'
This is how one child in an orphanage called 'Happy Home' speaks when describing how Zakat Foundation of India has changed her life. There are many more with similar stories and even more with the hope of joining Najma under the care of the Foundation.
