Food has helped Mikma grow healthy and strong!
This is Mikma, sitting on the steps of Dolpa Home, Kathmandu, enjoying a meal with her Dolpa “brothers”, Wangla and John.
Mikma was born in a remote village in Nepal and was brought to Dolpa when her elderly grandmother was too frail to care for her. Her parents had divorced, with her mother moving away, leaving her father dying of throat cancer. Mikma arrived a very scared little girl and clearly underweight.
Amos and Doma, houseparents of Dolpa, have over 10 years’ experience of welcoming children into their home and helping them to heal and thrive.
At first Mikma struggled with the new diet as she had been used to very limited foods, but eventually she began to love the food served at the home and even helps to grow vegetables in the garden.
She is described as warm hearted, humble and honest, and is doing really well in school. Most importantly, Mikma has discovered the love of Jesus and enjoys bible stories and praying openly.
140 children are being cared for across our 6 children’s home in Nepal, India and Bangladesh. Our partners provide a loving home, access to good education and share the love and hope of Christ with each child.
