Escaping the Paycheck to Paycheck Life

You Can Love Your Work —Grandma Kheaw loves her grandsons. She’s been raising them since them came to live with her 7 years ago, after their parents abandoned them. 
“I really do love those boys!” she told CBN. “I would do anything for them.” 

“Our grandma gives us food to eat,” said Chun, the oldest grandson. “We help her keep our house clean."

“Sometimes, I also help her with her work,” said Kim, Chun’s brother with a big smile. “I love my grandma.” 

Every day, Grandma Kheaw collects bottles to recycle and gathers palm leaves to sell. She uses an old motorcycle with a sidecar to get around. But doing all that work only brings in about a dollar a day.   Then, the motorcycle broke down.

“So I walked around from six in the morning to six at night and did odd jobs for people. I went to the pier and picked up the fish that the fishermen dropped on the floor.”   
When CBN’s Orphan’s Promise heard about Grandma Kheaw and her grandsons we repaired her motorcycle so she could collect bottles again and use it as a motorcycle taxi.
Finally, we set up a fish farm for her in her back yard so she can raise fish to sell. The boys help her with the fish farm after school. 

“Now, our stomachs are always full!” said Grandma. “I will never have to beg for food again. I can’t thank CBN enough for helping me and my grandchildren. May God bless you!”
