Living with Hope, Highland, IN
2020 Immediate Need Fund recipient
Michael is from the war-torn young nation of South Sudan, Africa. Illness and war experiences left him in a wheelchair. In most parts of Africa, people with disabilities are usually excluded from schools, work opportunities and even the community because they are considered to be of no value in the society. That was his life…a life with no hope and purpose. A missionary doctor, Dr. Tim Mead, who saved Michael’s life through multiple surgeries, saw Michael’s life as a true miracle and decided to take him to school and later included him to be a part of his family. Michael had a passion to go back to Africa and assist people with disabilities, so he created LIVING WITH HOPE to serve people affected by disabilities in Africa so they too can achieve their God-given potential. A donation from the INF purchased and sent 5 wheelchairs to Africa.
