First generation Christian and widow, Abhaya, and her daughter Esha lived a life of simplicity. While they hardly had enough money to care for each other and were considered low caste, their love for the Lord and the least of His was always apparent. While working at the police station one afternoon, Esha met two children who had been dropped off. Orphaned, alone, and with no place to call home, Esha knew she had to do something to help. Despite the lack of male leadership and a limited income, Esha and her mother decided that they wanted to give these children a chance at a better life. They opened their home and their heart, and gave the children a family to call their own. While Abhaya and Esha may be considered poor materialistically, they are abundantly wealthy in their love for the Lord and His children.
Today, the children are thriving in their new home in the Asha village. Both children have been sponsored through Mid India Child’s Asha Project, a $25 monthly sponsorship that supplies children with healthcare and everything necessary to attend school. Asha, which is Hindi for hope, is indeed what these children have been given thanks to Abhaya, Esha, and Mid India Child.
