Shanti Bhavan Home for Destitute, Batala Punjab

it was a dream of Br. Martin who has studied in London and had a deep spiritual experience. He always desired to do something for those unfortunate ones who are abandoned by their families because of their physical and mental health. Here in Punjab the Sikh Religion does a lot for the poor and abandoned ones. He was inspired by some of the centers that are run by our Sikh brothers. Br. Martin has vast experience, he has been one term as the vice provincial of Krist Jyoti and but well known missionary. Even today at an advanced age he goes around for evangelization. 
Friar Marin, Friar Bellaraim and sisters of FC congregation work together....the friars give bath and clean all the patients
The kitchen staff are ever willing to serve these unfortunate ones with a smile....God bless you for your participation in this mission
United we stand....they work together....young friar learning from the vast experience of Br. Martin.....sisters lend a solid support...
A dwelling for the inmates.....many locals come to support....they celebrate the birthdays with the inmates....they support in cash and kind....you can do so....

The fraternity has some land which is cultivated....the golden wheat is ready for harvest....
we are just providing what God provides .....we become hands and feet to the inmates
We are happy here,,,,,,we will continue to stay because this is heaven for us....we were dying on the streets and we are brought here.....

I love this corner.....because this corner of my life makes me happy....i am wanted and loved by all here...it was not like this before i came here
We live like a family....all of us are brothers
Lending my shoulder....i wish i continue doing so...
It is time for some dance and songs.....i join them...

We are all marching towards the kingdom of God,,,,we experience God's love and mercy
It is time to share.....sisters wanted me to distribute snacks to the inmates....

What a joy to feel one with them...smiles and deep satisfaction seen on their faces

I am crippled but i am loved here....with Love he is enabled to do many things on his own which he did not do...

We lend spiritual and emotional support says Br. Martin....who himself serves and cleans them...
Punjabi moves.....grooves....Punjabi songs are melodious and good for dance.....shaking their legs a bit....
