Delhi's father passed away and her family was destitute. Her twin toddler brother's were starving, and she reluctantly volunteered to go work in a rock quarry so they'd survive. Life in the quarry was a terrible combination of exhausting work and cruel abuse. She worked with a small hammer to break stones and then loaded the chips into trucks. This continued for years.
Eventually, Delhi was rescued by one of our field teams and brought to live at The Sylom Children's Home. She got the medicine and nutritious food that she needed to begin to recover from chronic malnutrition and abuse. Today, Delhi is finishing up her high school and is looking forward to learning a trade. Someday, she has hopes of becoming a doctor.
When you sponsor Delhi's vocational training, you'll get updates on her progress over 12 months.
