A Rickshaw to the Rescue in India

Kajendran lives in poverty with his family in India. CBN provided him a rickshaw so that he could transport goods and raise money to help support the family. Read Transcript


KAJENDRA HAULS MORE THAN

200 POUNDS OF ICE, FUEL, AND

FISHING EQUIPMENT EVERY DAY

ON THE SOUTHEAST COAST OF

INDIA.

THE MONEY HE MAKES SUPPORTS

HIS WIFE AND FOUR CHILDREN.

I WORK 10-HOUR DAYS, BUT

I ONLY EARN $3 EACH DAY.

I STRUGGLED A LOT TO BUY

FOOD AND PAY FOR MY

CHILDREN'S EDUCATION.

Reporter: HIS WIFE

PICKED THROUGH GARBAGE

DUMPS, LOOKING FOR THINGS

SHE COULD TRADE OR SELL.

IT WAS THE ONLY WAY THEY

COULD MAKE ENOUGH TO BUY

FOOD.

IT WAS VERY TOUGH FOR

US.

I THOUGHT ABOUT LEAVING MY

CHILDREN AT THE ORPHANAGE.

AT LEAST THERE THEY WOULD

HAVE SOMETHING TO EAT.

INSTEAD STUDYING, I HELP

MY FATHER ON THE WEEKENDS.

IT WAS DIFFICULT FOR HIM TO

WORK ALONE.

Reporter: ONE DAY WHILE

HE WAS TRANSPORTING A LOAD

OF FISH, HIS RIG SAW BROKE

DOWN.

ALL OF THE PARTS WAS

RUSTY, SO ONE OF THE WHEELS

CAME OLD.

I COULDN'T AFFORD TO BUY A

NEW ONE.

I WAS VERY CONCERNED THAT I

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO TAKE

CARE OF MY FAMILY.

Reporter: WHEN CBN

LEARNED ABOUT THE FAMILY'S

PROBLEM, WE FIRST INVITED

THEIR CHILDREN TO AN AFTER

SCHOOL PROGRAM SPONSORED BY

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." THERE

THEY RECEIVED SCHOOL

SUPPLIES AND A GOOD

EDUCATION.

THEN WE BOUGHT KAJENDRA A

NEW RICK SAW.

I AM CONFIDENT I WILL BE

BE ABLE TO PROVIDE A GOOD

LIFE FOR MY FAMILY.

I'M SO GRATEFUL THAT WE

CAN BUY FOOD FOR OUR

CHILDREN.

AND I DON'T HAVE TO PICK

THROUGH THE GARBAGE DUMP

ANYMORE.

AND NOW MY DAD NO LONGER

NEEDS MY HELP AT WORK, SO I0w

CAN CONCENTRATE ON MY

STUDIES.

CBN HAS HELPED MANY POOR

PEOPLE LIKE ME.

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL

CONTINUE TO BLESS CBN AND

EVERYONE WHO IS PART OF IT.
