History of orphans from 2002 riots in Gujarat:

Gujarati children, in the age group 4 to 11 years, arrived in Delhi in 2002 escorted by six elderly Gujarati adults. The children's arrival was covered by the media (link). The Gujarati children were from one of the following categories:

a) Both the parents are no more. There is nobody in the family who has even minimum means in order to look after the child.
b) Only one parent is alive. But he / she has no means whatsoever.
c) Both the parents are alive. But they have lost whatever little means they had and are now fully dependent on public charity.

As mentioned above, Zakat Foundation of India took upon itself total responsibility of bringing up these children.
