COVID-19 Needs - Filu and her Children - Mumbai, India

Filu is a strong disciple of Christ in Mumbai, India that has weathered many trials in her life. She is married and has three children ages 12, 11, and 9. Her husband is a skilled worker but, he is not a disciple and cannot be relied on to contribute towards household expenses. Filu is in constant prayer for her husband and has faith that his issues with alcohol and violent behavior will be changed as he sees Christ in her. Filu is also actively working to change the lives of her children by teaching them about God and encouraging them to work hard in school. Her children also learn from her example as she leads them in walking the six-mile journey to worship together to midweek services.   

Knowing that she cannot depend on the wages her husband earns, Filu has found work as a housemaid in various homes, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, she lost those jobs. Her family's desperate need and resilient character drove her to continue searching for work and miraculously she found a position at a medical shop as a cleaning assistant. She is grateful to be earning some income, but there is still a big gap between what she is paid and the expenses she is forced to shoulder on her own. Filu and her children have requested assistance to pay for groceries and rent expenses.
