I never had food to my satisfaction, and had experienced many sleepless nights. Most of my father’s earnings were spent for my mother’s medication. Joining this home is like a dream because still I find it hard to believe. Coming to this home has met most of my needs and now I aspire to reach my dream. I am learning to trust God and ask Him all my needs. I am expressing my gratitude to my dear sister Janet for her sympathetic heart, love and grace shown towards the poor children like me.
— Mahima

Mahima was eight years old when she was brought into our children's home. Krupanandam her father is a daily laborer who earns a small amount of Rs.75/ rupees in a day and Bujji her mother is a house wife. Her mother has developed many diseases which also weaken the family as they spend more than half the income in her medication. This family has lost all their property during the devastating Tsunami. They don’t have a house of their own even today and so they keep on changing their location on the income basis.

Once Mahima was down with sickness and since the family had no money for treatment, her father had decided for mercy killing. However, as this matter was known to her mother, she hid her for many days and saved her life.

In few days a pastor happened to visit the family and encouraged them with the Biblical lessons. Mahima has never been to the school and if she comes to our home then it will be her first place where she can experience a glimpse of love and get peace in her life.
