Sarah's Covenant Homes, fondly referred to as SCH, is a home for children with
varying degrees of special needs. Some range to mild while others are severe and
almost all of the children have medical issues that their tiny bodies fight
against on a daily basis. Over 100 precious lives are meticulously and carefully
doted over by a team of dedicated and devoted "ayah"'s and various mission teams
who come to volunteer. Caring and supporting 100 innocent souls can be a
daunting task, yet Sarah Rebbavarapu (founder and director) does so with the

As difficult as these
images can be, this is the harsh reality of the children's lives when they first
came to Sarah's Covenant Homes. If not for the the home willing to take these
dear ones in, the majority of the children would of died alone, with no one to hold
their hand, no one to caress
their cheek, no one to show them
the love of Jesus.
So, you see the
importance of this auction!
The money made from
the auction will literally be saving lives!!!
Don't you want to be
a part of that?
