Yokob received a wheelchair through GenHearts contributors in October 2011.  He later had a stroke and could not even push himself around.  GenHearts  continues to assist him with a part-time caretaker, who is shown above pushing him around.  Yakob is very grateful for this help, his family must work many hours for their basic livelihood, so without the caretaker, he would be left in his bed all day.

February 2013 Project: 

Chickens for Widows and Children in South India

Text Box: 	Life is very hard in the rural village of Lanka, India, population about 200.  Most days the widows and many of the children face is only available during harvest season, and the villagers do not own the land they work on as subsistence farmers.  We distributed 39 chickens in January 2013 to ten widows and nine children, thanks to Advent season donations in collaboration with the United Church of University Place.  Pastor Sudheer will distribute another 15 chickens in February to more widows in the village.   The photo on the right above shows part of the journey, there is a chicken head coming out of the side of the Pepsi box, and an auto-riksha with driver standing behind.  The roads to Lanka are muddy and unpaved, each journey is an adventure!  Check out Samson’s youtube for video: HERE
