This is a Gypsy grandmother aged 502 years old who lost all her children, due to preventable diseases. here she sleeps alone, forsaken and has nothing except what you see here in this image.
Her husband was killed in 2008. The Indian Gypsies are classed as Untouchables/ Unclean and because they are in Hindi Religion the lowest cast, they are denied Land, Education and healthcare. Beaten and chased from everywhere they go, they experience heartbreak and poverty.
I and Philadelphia Mission charity work with these people. They are so humble and are genuinely loving people. I ask you to Pray for them, and help in whatever way you can. Pray also for our Mission work in Nigeria and Kenya.
God Bless you my dear friends here on RB.
