A single Parent’s worrisome state
“I had lost hope. I was worried; my sons were sleeping on an empty stomach daily.”
Shyam Kushwah is a worker in a pipe manufacturing factory from Vrindavan. Having lost his job during the lockdown, he was devastated as he wasn’t able to find any other work that could fetch him a decent income. Being a single parent for two boys he was disappointed in himself. He was not able to feed them properly and almost every night, they slept on an empty stomach.
He found relief when Akshaya Patra had started serving nutritious meals to labourers and workers like him. Through this lockdown, he had understood the importance of saving money for future needs and emergencies. He is thankful to God for having shown him the path towards Akshaya Patra’s relief team.
God never leaves you alone. He might close one door, but will also open a window to show his light. Be that beacon of light in the lives of marginalised people. Support Akshaya Patra today!
