Balu from Liberia has faced unique challenges. His mother, who was an East Indian Hindu, abandoned him during the Liberian war. A Hindu community raised him but later rejected him when he chose to follow Christ. Then eighteen years ago, Balu became blind.

Despite all these trials, Balu remains a pleasant, grateful person. He expressed his appreciation for the monthly food parcel that helps him and his wife survive now that he can’t see to work. “I am very much thankful,” Balu said. “God richly bless you!”
