When Akhil's father ran up a debt gambling, the enforcers for the loan shark came and took Akhil away by force to settle the debt. The enforcers sold him to a human trafficker who in turn sold Akhil to a rock quarry. Akhil was terrified because he had never been subject to any kind of physical abuse. He often went without food because older boys bullied him and stole his portion. Akhil in his desperation cried out to God to save him from this terrible place.
By God's Grace, Akhil was rescued in 2019 and brought to The Sylom Children's Home. He has restarted school and has found comfort in the words of the pastors and counselors at the home. Akhil hopes to become a doctor, and he loves his science classes.
