What a difference !
Yes. This is little Anosh who is showing off the friendship bracelet hand made and sent to him by one of our young supporters (see our news section for that story). It's hard to believe it's the same child pictured in the inset when he first arrived at our school. Through your generosity, he's one of the children who you've not only helped to educate, but he has more love in his heart and more food in his stomach!

Our Children's Stories
Nawaz and Muskan
Nawaz and Muskan are brother and sister. Their parents are among the poorest of the poor. Since their parents could not afford to care for their children, these two, together, roamed the streets. Destitute, they showed up on the doorstep of one of the schools we support in the Middle East. Hungry and afraid, their sullen faces soon turned to joy in this House of Hope that compassionate supporters have helped to fund.
Arzo's father is physically and mentally ill. He is also into witchcraft. Her mother, uneducated, is unable to support their children so Arzo has had to fend for herself. She has literally been a slave for people in order to feed herself. She always dreamed of an education, but most schools in her country require tuition for school and very few offer a Biblically based curriculum. Thankful to find her way to a school that RCF, Inc. assists, she is loving being in school for the first time in her life. She now has hope for her future.
When Adil came to one of the schools we help to fund, he literally did not have a shirt on his back. He roamed the streets by day and was a scared orphan of the streets by night. Malnourished, Adil is now thriving. He loves being able to sing praise songs and pray. He is getting an education and learning about Jesus' unfathomable love for him. His, is a life transformed.
