Udavum Karangal is an Orphanage in Chennai, India doing a very needed service of taking care of all ages of people discarded by our society. You may already be familiar with the Institution and its founder Mr.Vidyakar.

There are over 1600 residents now and many of them are young children.

The organization has a main campus in Tiruverkadu,
right behind the Amman temple there and it is only a 30 minute trip from Chennai. Please feel free to visit the Orphanage and see for yourself how clean and well kept the place is, how disciplined the children are and how well all residents are taken care of.

The Orphanage supports mentally retarded people, AIDs patients, elderly and infirm people left on the streets, apart from all the children it takes care of, so lovingly.
