The Prince of Peace Pavilion of Hope is a feeding center for the elderly and indigent in Porumamilla, India. Porumamilla is located in east central India in the state of Andhra Pradesh and district of Kadapah.
The feeding center was built in 2013 and started feeding operations in November of that year.
The idea for the feeding center came from Fr. Tom Aduri (Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Topeka) and Fr. Bill Bruning (St. Peter, Kansas City). Fr. Bruning made an appeal to Prince of Peace parish in the fall of 2012 and Prince of Peace parishioners donated the funds to build the pavilion and have continued financial support of the feeding operations.
The pavilion is located 200 yards from the Blessed Brian Home (BBH) which is an orphanage for children, primarily girls, ages 4 to 17. BBH prepares the food and manages the daily feeding operation.
If you would like to help feed the elderly in this community please send a donation to:
