The children at Elvira Home come from surrounding mountainous tribal areas. These areas are very rural and lack all basic services. There are no schools and no health clinics. The villagers are uneducated and illiterate and often refuse medication for common diseases such as malaria and typhoid. Consequently, morbidity and mortality due to infectious disease is extremely high. All of the children in Alvira home have lost one or both parents. The children are cared for by Anand and Padma in a small village on the outskirts of Palakonda. They attend the government school in the village. Agape in Action started providing support in 2017 to assist Anand who was struggling to provide support on his wage. He is an auto driver and a journalist. The home/hostel is registered with the government, and to comply with new government regulations, Agape in Action is building a new facility to support the accommodation of the children.
