A Tiny Church In A Mumbai Slum Gives A Giant Gift At Christmas

MUMBAI, INDIA – Two women sit quietly on a tile floor in a Mumbai slum and carefully piece together bits of green and orange fabric in an intricate design. Sunlight filtering through the barred windows lights up piles of brown plastic bags around them; hundreds of cotton quilts are folded neatly inside.

“I want to make them fast so I can give them to the girls sooner,” Shanti* says with a smile.
