About Amy Carmichael:

Born in northern Ireland in 1867, Amy served the people of India as a missionary for over 50 years. Her deepest desire was to share Jesus’ love with the local people.

Indian girls were often unwanted and were given to the temple to serve as prostitutes. During her time as a missionary in India, she established the Dohnavur Fellowship, an orphanage to save these young girls from cult prostitution in Hindu temples and later to take in boys sold to temple service, as well. The Dohnavur Fellowship is still in operation today and has grown to include schools and a free medical clinic.

Over the 50 years she spent in India, Amy Carmichael took in hundreds of unwanted children. She became known as "Amma" or mother to them.
