These Fighters at the Cancer Hospital – Lifeline May 2017

“Fear has an expiration date. Love is untameable” On 7th May 2017, we had the joy of visiting these brave and courageous kids from Kidwai Kapur ward, Bangalore. All these beautiful ones are dealing with cancer. They are actively fighting it every single day. Figuring it out, learning about it, coping and fighting. Cancer is part of their story but no way is it the whole story. They are not their illness – it does not define them or possess them. Every moment with them is precious and unforgettable and they teach us more about joy and strength than anyone […]

The Gift of Giving – Open Hands in May 2017

“Extravagant love always finds a way to multiply itself” GIVING! A word that holds so much weight because it is an action of selflessness. This action is a reflex to some and to others we practice being intentional. No matter how you choose to give to those around you, the action is there, either by kind words, or filling a desperate need to whomever is the recipient. We’re so happy to see this coming together and see more and more needs being met every month. This month, we were able to gift a computer to the Balajothi Centre for the disabled in Bangalore, […]
