A beautiful story is being shared by SCN family members in Botswana.
Savita Sharma, a native of India, living in Botswana, Africa, wanted to mark her birthday in a meaningful way. She asked to celebrate her birthday with the children of Mmopane OVC Centre, many of whom come from families that are economically challenged. She coordinated the entire event. She invited friends, prepared a feast and brought gifts and goodies for each child. Both Savita and the children say they had a wonderful time. “Thank you, you all made my day. I will never forget this birthday, ” Savita told the children as she was leaving the centre.
It is with such acts, that Savita strives to live out the Gospel, one passage that comes to mind, “When you give a feast… invite the poor…(Lk.14: 13-14).”
