This was the cry of two little brothers who recently came to live in our Hope Home. At 6 and 5, Biku and Akash couldn’t quite rationalize why their parents had food one day, but not the next. Although they did live in a small mud hut rather than on the streets, it still didn’t calm the ache in their little bellies when no food was made available several times a week.
Although they miss their parents, they are very happy at the Hope Home. They have already made many new friends. They look forward to knowing that they get to eat every day! Biku loves to eat rice and dal; Akash loves to eat everything! They are attending school and are learning about all kinds of opportunities they can have if they study hard. When asked what they wanted to be when they grew up, they both started giggling and said “something!”
Help us put that kind of joy into more children by sponsoring a child at $35 a month and by purchasing a Hope Pack for $50 so each child has the supplies needed to start school this July. Akash and Biku thank you, along with thousands of others like them, for your prayers and financial support.
