A blessed place called cherish foundation one will find smiling and God fearing children playing and growing up as a family with Jesus around them in form of David ....

its a sincere prayer that this family stay blessed and focussed on keeping Christ first in everything....

We have had great cherishing experiences in joining them while celebrating birthdays of Nathan or Ethan or may be having crackers blast on the eve of Diwali for the glory of Christ

I have always regretted that I could be a very small part of this home but every initeraction of ours was as blessed as heavenly and as memorable as possible

I thank Dr Sujaya my wife who has always supported me in being a part of Cherish Home

Thank Mr Praful Dharod for sponsoring one Hepatitis B camp out of three organised

May God shower his choicest blessings on this Bethlehem of India

Cherish Foundation is a wonderful home for children run by David Subramanyam, a very humble man who has dedicated his life to helping those that come into his care. All the children are happy, well-behaved and polite, studious and grateful for all they have (which is so little!). What these children need more than anything, in my opinion, is a home of their own. They are living in a run-down property that is being lent to them free of charge but they could be evicted at short notice. I can't even imagine how they could manage if that were to happen. The idea terrifies me when I think of the dangers that the children could be exposed to. I know Cherish extremely well and all I can say is that these children need to stay together as a family under David's care so that they can continue to thrive. A new home would ideally be twice as large so that another 35 children could benefit from this incredibly loving and caring environment. The children pray daily for a home of their own and my dream is to start a non-profit for this purpose. If anyone reading this would be willing to help, David can give you my contact information and I'll keep you informed.

The children need a home of their own. If the facility were larger, many more children could benefit from this life-transforming environment.

The staff at Room to Grow are devoted to supporting new families and changing their experiences of parenthood by offering guidance, encouragement and care as well as a magnificent array of material goods. As a consultant to the clinical staff I have been impressed by the knowledge, thoughtfullness and joy that the clinical staff bring to their work with families.

One Fine day i got some information from one of my friend that they had visited an orphanage(almost 30 kids present) and spent some time with the kids, which really changed the way, we look at life. They have so little still no complains, full cooperation between them and zeal to do something better in life. As per as our concern we have good families, great parents, opportunities still we complain, we fight, etc... Lots more to learn in life... I thought, and i requested my friend to plan one more visit, as i want to visit this place and do some donation, First time i have just donated Rs 2500 (not in the form of cash, but brought some rice, dal, and other daily consumables for the kids and care takers). We visited cherish orphanage and it was really great feeling, i felt so lucky for all that i have in my life, got from my parents, at the same time felt guilty that we don't even think much for those who are under privileged, thought this is not enough, i should keep coming here & donate something within my capacity! There was a guy Mr. David taking complete responsibility of the kids, absolutely great personality, what a man! By listening his complete story, I felt God is present in some form to care these kids! he is really a inspirational guy. Also he had some good friends who do regularly help him. So that's it After some time again we have planned a visited CHERISH. This time i have donated Rs 4500(rice, dal and other daily consumables). i felt everyone has at least should have some moral responsibility to visit such places and share some time with the special kids. I know very well my donations are very less, still am planning to regularize it and do as much as i can. "Visiting CHERISH and spending some time was absolutely a great experience"

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes, i would just love to increase the facilities for the kids and keep the passion of LIFE on, and obviously add more needy children.

I had visited cherish foundations old age home in 2011 on behalf of an organization called YUVA. We had come to celebrate children's day with the inmates of the orphanage. We were really happy to see that the place was well managed, children were healthy and happy and were getting good education and facilities. We enjoyed a lot along with the children and it was really a wonderful experience.
