The Siloam Home for Orphans and Widows was started in 1984 by Siloam International Christ Church in Yamaga City, Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan. The home is located in Southeast India, Khammam Dist. Sathupally, and houses more than 60 orphans and widows. They operate a small farm to try to be as self-sufficient as possible but the area receives little rain making it a difficult task. For most of its existence a church has also met on the orphanage property.
