Happiness in a father’s eyes

happiness, Christian Aid Ministries

Eight years ago a gunshot to the head paralyzed Firas,* a Syrian father. Despite the injury, Firas found a way to earn an income by selling bread from a small shop. Then one day a fire broke out, reducing his shop to ashes.

Without a job, Firas spent many long days inside his home. Although he once owned a wheelchair, it had been destroyed when a bus crashed into him. He was left reliant on others to move him from place to place.

“The happiness in his eyes is indescribable,” believers reported after they delivered a wheelchair to Firas’s home. The wheelchair helped end Firas’s long, lonely days inside. “He thanked us with great love,” said the believers.
