Shivering from the cold, Amora pulled her worn jacket closer. She had hoped it would shelter her chilled body, but it had long lost its warmth.
In a family of eight children, six of whom still lived at home, Amora often had to wait years for a new coat. Daxton, Amora’s father, knew his children needed new winter coats, but he could only afford to buy one jacket per year. The meager pay he earned as a daily wage laborer simply wasn’t enough to fulfill the desires of all his children at once.
Not only did Daxton work tirelessly to provide for his family’s basic needs, he also shouldered the additional cost of purchasing school supplies to supplement each child’s education. When Daxton was unable to purchase all the supplies his children needed, they struggled to keep up with their studies. Amora fell behind.
Recognizing she needed personalized help with her studies, Daxton and his wife enrolled Amora in the local Gospel for Asia (GFA) Bridge of Hope center.
Help Comes from After-school Program: Gift of Coat
Soon after her enrollment, Amora benefitted from the after-school tutoring she received at Bridge of Hope, which catered to her specific needs. Her studies improved, and the gifts she received from Bridge of Hope, such as school supplies, also helped her to stay caught up in her classes.
But there was one other gift Amora received that was extra special – a bright red, insulated winter coat that would keep her warm!
Support the faithful men and women who risk their lives in cold climates and also help bring winter coat and blankets to needy families across Asia today.
