Ferdinand*, who is 12, lives with his family in the rural community of Sthobela. Two years ago, Ferdinand’s life drastically changed. While riding in the back of a truck on his way to school, he fell out onto the road while the vehicle was driving. He spent the following year in the hospital and at home recovering from his injuries, which set him back a year in school. On top of his already vulnerable life, Ferdinand’s file from the accident was lost in the police station and he was not able to access the therapy his body so desperately needed. #CareWorker Lily is using Ferdinand’s story to teach the other children about respect; that no matter how different people are from each other, they are equally important in God’s eyes. Because of the Christ-like examples shown by Ferdinand’s Care Worker, Lily, Ferdinand knows love and has a great hope for his future. Just recently, Ferdinand and his family received some good news – his file has been found! This means that Ferdinand’s mother can work towards receiving government compensation, as well as get her son access to the therapy he needs. Please pray for favour and healing for Ferdinand. *name has been changed #ChristOurFoundation #Prayer #ServingTheMostVulnerable
