Thanks to our faithful donors like you, more than $6,000 has been raised to help with a vehicle for House of Joy! And it looks like it’s a good thing…
After writing you all about the tragic death of Bangiri because of a lack of transportation to medical care, another emergency hit House of Joy.
Some of the House of Joy girls were walking home one day, and Jessica was struck by a motorcycle. It was apparent right away that she was seriously injured and needed to get to a medical facility.
Without a vehicle of their own, the house parents hired an autorickshaw to get Jessica some help. As you can imagine, it was a long, bumpy and painful ride to the orthopedic hospital nearly 35 miles from home.
Thankfully, the only injury requiring treatment was a broken leg. Joseph and Christy, the house parents, expressed their thankfulness that it had not been more serious, “If there had been damage to organs, she wouldn’t have been able to endure such a distance by autorickshaw. She was in a lot of pain with just the leg!”
If you would like to contribute toward the remaining $6,000 necessary to buy a van for House of Joy, please give online at boazproject.org/houseofjoy or send your check to The Boaz Project | PO BOX 47188 | Indianapolis, IN 46247
