Prewet squinted; his vision had been growing progressively worse. He used to see quite clearly, but as he grew older, it got harder and harder to see. Unfortunately, there was nothing he or his family could do about his diminishing eyesight.
The Available Opportunities
Prewet grew up in an impoverished home, his parents making what little money they could through daily labor. He was an unruly, disobedient boy who spoke disrespectfully to his elders and wore unkempt clothing. That was until he enrolled in GFA World’s Child Sponsorship Program.
Through his enrollment in the program, Prewet took advantage of the support and instruction available to him. The tutors encouraged and guided the boy in both his education and his personal life, offering the direction and discipline Prewet needed. Through their caring support, they helped transform Prewet into a respectful, diligent student.
In addition, the program helped provide for Prewet’s basic needs. Medical checkups provided by the program revealed Prewet suffered from anemia. Fortunately, the staff worked hard to ensure Prewet had what he needed for physical and mental growth. Through nutritious meals and health-care awareness, the program staff helped Prewet keep himself healthy. But a problem was already arising.
