We have just received the sad news from Tamil Nadu that Santhosh's eldest son, Bobby John, died last night.
Bobby John had been an invalid ever since we first met him as a result of an operation for a brain tunour that left him seriously paralysed. His family were dedicated to him, and he was unwittingly the inspiration for Asha Kiran Ashram: his disability led Santhosh to enquire about how many other children in his area were disabled, and this in turn led to the founding of Asha Kiran Ashram, our special needs school and home for disabled children. This has gone from strength to strength since the present buildings were put up, financed by HHI, in 2009. HHI continues to provide much of the running costs for the building, and Santhosh raises the rest locally and through his contacts around the world.
Please pray for the family as they mourn their loss.
