#166 - Compassion's Child Survival Program
I received another letter from a mother in the Child Survival Program in India that we sponsor through Compassion.
...Before joining CSP, I could not even buy mils for my baby, because of financial strain so many conflicts used to arise in our family. Even nutritious food we used to get only once in a blue moon. Hence, I could not bring up my song giving nourished food and very often he would fall sick. But after joining CSP, my daughter is not affected by all these problems and she is healthy because of CSP's care. Daily she gets milk, vegetables and good nourishment.
We are taught to prepare healthy foods, with the things we get from the project and out of low cost food items, by practical demonstration. This is very useful to us. We learnt to give the children balanced food. By the water filter given by the project we drink pure water. We are protected from mosquito and consequent diseases, through the mosquito net and bed sheets given by the project. By the awareness camps conducted by the project, I learnt prevention methods from diseases. Now I and my family are very happy. We don't bother for anything, and we have a hope that through CSP, our Lord will bless us a bright future.
I have a desire to give good education to my daughter, and bring her up as a doctor. I thank the Lord for giving us good sponsors. We, as a family, thank the sponsor from the bottom of our hearts. I thank the Lord for He had made me a beneficiary in CSP.
I'm thankful for Compassion's ministry to mothers and infants around the world. The name...Child Survival Program...says it all. Can you imagine living in conditions so dire and so hopeless, the thought of your child surviving (not thriving, not being happy...SURVIVING) was first and foremost on your mind?
CSP sponsorship is only $20 a month. Can I send you a brochure?
