Familia is a tiny community in West Bengal, India, that provides a loving family life for orphaned or abandoned children and a secure haven for aged women and men who are without a family of their own.
The charity meets approximately 30% of their costs each year through farming; they have 20 acres of land, 30 milking buffaloes, chickens and two fish ponds. They also grow as many vegetables, rice and fruit as they can. However the price they can achieve for their produce is very low so there is inevitably a gap between income and expenditure each year.
