Reporter: THE FIRE

DESTROYED ALMOST

EVERYTHING.

LEO AND HIS GRANDFATHER

BARELY ESCAPED.

IT WAS A HUGE FIRE.

THE ROOF, DOORS -- ALL OF

OUR BELONGINGS WERE

DESTROYED.

Reporter: LEO LIVES

WITH HIS GRANDFATHER BECAUSE

HIS MOTHER ABaN ONED HIM AND

HIS FATHER IS IN PRISON.

MY GRANDPA IS A GREAT

MAN.

EVERYBODY KNOWS HIM IN THE

VILLAGE AND LOVES HIM.

SOMETIMES WE GO TO COLLECT

WOOD TOGETHER, AND WE LIKE

TO GO TO A PARK, TOO.

Reporter: GRANDPA RAOUL

EARNS MONEY SELLING CANDY

AND BY WORKING AS A HANDYMAN

IN A NEARBY VILLA.

BUT HIS SMALL INCOME BARELY

BUYS THEM FOOD.

AFTER THE FIRE WAS NOT AN

OPTION. AND REPLACING THE

FAULTY WIRE THAT CAUSED THE

FIRE WAS ALSO IMPOSSIBLE.

I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR

MY GRANDSON, BUT IT HAS BEEN

SO HARD.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" BOUGHT THEM NEEDED

SUPPLIES TO REPLACE THE ROOF

AND DOOR.

WE ALSO REWIRED THE HOUSE

AND ADDED A BREAKER BOX TO

PREVENT FUTURE FIRES.

IT IS SO GOOD TO KNOW

THAT THE HOUSE IS REPAIRED

AND SAFE.

WHEN WE SAW IT, WE WERE

FULL OF SMILES.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" ALSO

DELIVERED A NEW CART AND

SUPPLIES FOR GRANDPA RAOUL

TO SELL FOOD AND DRINKS NEAR

THEIR HOME.

I'M NOT AS YOUNG AS I

USED TO BE, SO THIS NEW FOOD

CART WILL REALLY HELP.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

YOU HAVE CHANGED OUR LIVES.
