They Need the Van
You’ve heard of the Dalits before, and that they eke out their lives on less than $1 a day. What you don’t hear about is the simple problem that far too often kills them; getting sick. Getting sick means they can’t work. If they can’t work they have no money to buy food. A medical problem that would be a ‘blip’ for you and me will go untreated and often end in death.
But you can provide healthcare -- examination, treatment, medicines -- for one Dalit for only $2.85. This means that for only $2.85 you can literally save a life. But how is it possible to do that for such a small amount?
Your gift sends a van full of doctors, nurses, medicines and supplies to remote villages to serve the poorest of the poor. It’s called the Mobile Medical Van and I hope you’ll send a gift today. Just look at the huge impact you can have;
The Mobile Medical Van is a lifeline for poor people in remote villages. Lalitha lives in Nagalanka, she’s a widow with two children ages 6 and 7. Recently both her children got sick. Lalitha desperately wanted to help them, but knew that if she didn’t work that day she couldn’t afford to buy food for dinner. So she went to work.
Lalitha literally had to choose between her children being healthy and having any food to eat for dinner. Can you imagine having to make that choice for your family?
Lalitha hoped her children would get better, but days later they were worse. They were losing weight and were close to dying. Thankfully we drove the van to her village and set up a medical camp. It only took our doctors a few minutes to see that her children had malaria. And after receiving the needed medicines and treatment, both children fully recovered.
The cost to save the lives of those two children was less than what you’ll spend the next time you go out to dinner.
I know you care about ministering to the poorest of the poor in India. The Mobile Medical Van program is a fantastic way for you to directly impact people who desperately need help -- at a very low cost. The Van program has treated, healed and cured thousands of people, but there are hundreds of villages and thousands more people who need our help today.
Will you please send a gift today? Isn’t it amazing that just $28.50 will provide life-changing medical care for 10 people?
Right now there are so many villages -- and mothers like Lalitha -- who urgently need medical attention. And in addition to the loving witness and expert medical care your gift provides, you also make an amazing moment possible; the relief and joy on the faces of the mothers and fathers when they see the Van drive into their village. It’s almost too wonderful for words, and I sincerely I hope you can see it some day.
I thank God for you because you make the Mobile Medical Van program -- and all our work -- possible. Please prayerfully consider sending in a gift today.
