Love for Amir Hussain and his father.

Dear friends,

You may all remember Amir Hussain, a kind responsible son, who really loves and cares about his father – Abdur Nur who is suffering from a severe ulcer from a long time and enduring a lot of hardships every day but never stopped loving and caring for his children too.

Amir Hussain had to sell his only cow in order to treat his father. The cow was his best friend and most favorite things in his world and the only source of income for his family. But he had to sacrifice his friendship and earnings to save his father’s life.

Despite his father’s treatment, his father never fully recovered and Amir Hussain had to pay a hefty sum of money every month for his father’s treatment which he is struggling to earn.

I believe the story touched all your hearts. Such a responsible and love story between father and son is very rare these days. We can be at least hopeful from this story that poverty has not yet taken away humanity from all people.

The day I heard his story; I wanted to do something for them, so that Amir Hossain can get his friend back and can continue his father’s treatment.

I promised Amir Hussain and his Father Nur Uncle that I will help them to do something for them so they can get a sustainable life.

So, arranging money, I met with them again. Since Amir Hussain is used to rearing cows and knows how to run a household by rearing cows, I did not have to think too much about how to help him. Since they live in the village, milking a Cow with a calf is the best solution and business for them.

I know that; many of you are eagerly waiting for their updates and now, you all will be happy to know that, by the grace of God, I bought a cow and a calf for them. After getting back the cow and the calf Amir Hussain seems to have got his life back. I can’t explain his happiness and gratefulness with words when he saw them… Brother Amir hugged me with all his strength to show his gratitude and started crying while sitting next to the Cow.

The Cow gives 3-4 liters of milk a day and by selling that milk he can earn about 300 taka per day. Keeping milk for his family, he can earn almost taka 9000 per month. Alhamdulillah, now with this money they can live a prosperous life as they wished for. In total it cost almost 1,000 USD.

My friends, your positive inspiration, pure love, and strong faith in me, helps me to move forward every single day. Know that nothing would have been so easy without you all. My journey could never have gone so far without you and your support. I am grateful!

Please keep me in your prayers so that I may continue my mission to change the lives of helpless people in their need.

Sending my Love and prayers for everyone…

Love and Light
