Welcome to Love Thy Neighbor India
Our efforts were started in September 2010 when we launched our first project in
Love Thy Neighbor India will be spreading it's wings to help different charities/non-profit organizations. While backpacking throughout
Our purpose is to give the HOPE of life to all, concentrating on the poor, neglected, and abandoned children. Our programs we are sponsoring are dedicated to training men and women to become self supporting, providing love and care to poverty stricken and orphaned children, aiding them with healthy food, education, clothing, and health care. By doing this we aspire to see the poor families earning and not begging on the streets. It is our ambition to bring forth a good education to this country, raising the literacy rate in the slum areas. Accomplishing this vision will raise the living standards and make them a part of an educated community, both in the slums, villages, towns and cities.
LOVE THY NEIGHBOR -
In 1991, Arnold P. Abbott created Love Thy Neighbor Fund, Inc. (LTN) as a loving, living tribute to his beloved late wife Maureen, to continue, on a larger scale, the work they had done together. Its purpose has always been to recycle and preserve the integrity of our most precious natural resource: human beings --
Love Thy Neighbor Fund, Inc is a interfaith organization of volunteers who are at the forefront of helping the homeless in
The Maureen A. Abbott Love Thy Neighbor Fund and Love Thy Neighbor India are actually based on two very simple concepts. We believe that "We are our brother's keeper" and we should "Love thy neighbor as thyself." We are a conglomerate of people of all religions, beliefs, color, and size working together with a common goal - caring for our less fortunate brothers and sisters as best we can. We have no boundaries. We are all part of one family, the human family.
TOGETHER WE ARE CHANGING THE LIVES OF MANY ONE STEP AT A TIME.
ONE WORLD=ONE LOVE=ONE FAMILY
*REALITIES OF POVERTY
A Painful Reality…
Poverty is reality for nearly half the world’s population – almost
3 billion people. And of those, more than 1 billion subsist on less than $1 a day. For them, basic necessities seem impossible – every step is another obstacle to overcome. The statistics tell a grim tale.
Facts about poverty:
• Poverty is the number one killer in the world (British Medical Journal)
• Six million children under the age of 5 die as a result of hunger and malnutrition every year (UNICEF)
• More than 1 billion people live without access to safe drinking water (UN)
• More than 78 percent of the developing world's urban population now lives in slums (UN - Habitat)
Statistics only tell part of the story. Behind the numbers are real people.
