“I tried to work as hard as I can at the construction site, but I didn’t like the fact that they didn’t pay me most of the time,” says Sujit.
It was during this season, as Sujit and his family struggled to survive, that the staff at the Compassion center noticed Sujit was coming to center activities less and less. Timon, the center Director, visited Sujit’s family and began to work out how the center could support them while giving Sujit the freedom to go to school and come to the church.
“It was not easy to pass by Sujit’s home while returning to our own, being aware of their situation,” says Timon.
The church, along with Compassion, came to a decision to use the Highly Vulnerable Children's Care to help Sujit and his family. With this, they were able to provide the family with monthly supplies consisting of rice, soybean oil, lentils and toiletries so that the children wouldn’t have to work or worry about providing for their family’s basic needs.
