Anamika’s Story of restored hope
As a little girl, Anamika was an orphan living on her own. She often lived in the forest with other children scrounging for food and protection. Like many children in India life was difficult, painful, and lonely. If you’re like us, and we believe you are – your heart breaks for those little ones!
But all’s not lost – no, in fact you’re making a huge difference today. Through your partnership with Central India Christian Mission, thousands of children like Anamika experience Jesus!
For over three decades, CICM has been re-writing this sad reality for India’s children. CICM’s Home in Jakadbandha is one place where this is happening for hundreds of children. The best part—God is using Anamika, a former student, to help! And when you give, you can too! After arriving at one of CICM’s Home’s, Anamika’s story started to be re-written. Lashi Lall Howard who currently oversees these Homes had this to say…
So how is Anamika helping today? She’s helping re-write the stories of hundreds of children at the Jakadbandha Children’s Home as a teacher. In speaking about her students, she said, “I was determined to come back and help these children learn how to stand on their own two feet.” Without the love and care offered through these homes and your generosity it’s not difficult to imagine how Anamika’s story would’ve turned out. We know this because thousands of children are turned away each year due to a lack of resources. As I write today, nearly 1,400 children are being served in one of these Homes, with thousands more waiting – each with stories that desperately need re-written. Not only that, but less than half of these Homes have the total funding needed to care for the children currently being served.
So how can you help today? Would you consider a gift of $25, $50, $100 or $1,000 to help meet the basic needs of these 1,400 children?
$25 feeds 11 children’s bellies this week
$50 provides a warm bed to sleep in
$100 provides medical care (immunizations) for 10 children this year
$1,000 provides food, shelter, and medical care for 2 children this year
Regardless of how much you give — please know you’re making an immediate impact in the lives of children, and an eternal impact for generations to come! Your gift to help another Anamika can do twice as much if you give by July 31. Another CICM partner has generously agreed to double the first $10,000 given by this date.
As always, thank you!
