Life in a Garden Shed

This week, Urmila was asked to assess a family referred to us by a local welfare agency in RakiRaki. We were told the girls had not been to school for some time and the family were having a hard time managing, especially since the recent floods.

While my kids were fussing about ear phones for their ipods and having to make their own lunches for school, I got a text saying that Urmila had found the family living in a garden shed without any food. Within a few hours she had organised some groceries, measured them up for uniforms and sorted school fees, and started the process of creating a support network around them.

We will get the girls back to school and then look into ways we can help their mum to create an income and get back on her feet, against desperate odds.

Your generosity helps families like this one recover from being beaten down by life and provides the opportunity for them to step up into a future with hope. Never underestimate the difference your support can make in the hands of the poor, they are remarkably resourceful!

Thank you,

Warmly
