BAPS Charities recently visited the Al Hidaya Orphanage to provide much needed food and groceries. The Al Hidaya Orphanage is a certified home for parentless children. It was founded in 2008. Currently, it is home to 50 orphans (30 boys and 20 girls), whose ages range from 2-18 years. The children attend the government school in the vicinity of the orphanage, where they get free education. The orphanage is their permanent home.
