World Refugee Day is observed on Monday. In this Baby Home most children at the home are either orphans or have single working parents who are unable to care for them. More than 100,000 Tibetan refugees have made India their home and hundreds flee to India each year due to political and religious repression in Tibet under Chinese occupation.
