Voice of Jesus Ministries has started the Ashram with 20 children in the age group of 9-11 years in its premises at Jagannaickpur Area in the old city.

Its Director Joseph Beera said the Ashram was started with the sole motto of ''serving humanity is serving the Lord'' and without depending upon government's assistance.

He said majority of the children were orphans and few disowned by their families. Every effort would be made to shape them into useful citizens.
