Emmanuel Christian Charitable Society (E.C.C.S) came into
existence on January 2003 at a small town called, Angamaly
of Eranakulam district, in the state of Kerala, India. It
was founded By Bro.Chackochan Edayal. The main aim of E.C.C.S
is to eliminate the pain and sufferings of our downtroden
brothers and sisters. The society was formed with the intention
to offer a helping hand to the poorest of the poor.
I am giving you my testimony for your information. Though
born in an aristocratic Christian family of Central Travancore,
like every one I too had all the privileges of being brought
up under true Christian spirit and values. As years passed
I became an active member and even the state leader of the
then Socialist party of late Jayaprakash Narayan.
unfortunately it took long 40 years for me to realize
the fact that ‘the love of the world is enmity
to God’ (In Bible, James 4:4 says, “You
adulteresses, do you not know that the friendship
of the world is enmity to God? Whoever, then, desires
to be a friend of the world,makes himself
and enemy of God.”). While participating in
a charismatic retreat lead by Rev.Fr.Dr.Augustine
G Pallikkunnel, I decided to devote myself to God.
Unlike everyone, in the interest of serving God through
our fellow beings, I decided to share my life with
the abandoned members of the society. I enjoyed the
abundant grace of God throughout my service for the
last 27 years.
my initial stages I could bring up only a few children
in my own home. But later God gave me a wonderful
opportunity to listen to the words of Padmasree Dr.
M.A Thomas, a great human lover who accommodates thousands
of orphans, widows, leprosy patients etc. in the state
of Rajasthan. He said “ If God has given a vision
to somebody, He will not let him die unless and until
the vision given is fulfilled ”. God inspired
me through his words and I had the courage to share
what ever I have, to greater number than a few.

a lot of children along with me and the ''The eldest
of my children is of 25 years old and working as a
Nurse in abroad.
All of my children enjoy good food, education, social
status and every other rights an ordinary child has.
It is the mercy of God and the co-operation of our
well-wishers that helped us to enjoy all these. We
pray to God for our needs and He always hears.
do not feel that I have done my best. I can
feel the breath of my Saviour in each abanoned
child. Still there are hundreds of unwanted
lives in the womb of their mothers and on the
streets anti-socials etc. Therefore our responsibility
does not come to an end with 25 or 50 children.
Mere providing of food and education is not
everything. We have to form them as a true and
civilized citizens of world as well as the children
of God. They need to have a home of their own.
They too deserve good facilities at home. We
must be in a position to provide them all these.
It is my dream. It has always been a pleasure
for me to see that many people have a feeling
for my children. So some of them are helping
me to work for this dream. By the grace of God,
I can say that manyof my children are now the
best students of their schools (both in studies

Maker; but he who has mercy on those who are
in need gives him honour " ( proverb 14:31)

and shower, learn truth, and courage from all-round.
We have the burden to reach the unreached and
development of the children and community through
different projects. For which we need your prayer
and support. Please do remember our services
in your prayer. By which we both can be partners
for God’s work. We shall be extremely
thankful if you would find time in attending
to our request. Please feel free to contact
us for further information.
