Mahammod Rafi Darga
The young boy you see in the pictures below is named Mahammod Rafi Darga (“Rafi”). Rafi is a beautiful 11-year old child who is deaf. He is from the village of Sangapatnam in India. Rafi has two sisters, ages 7 and 8 years old. His parents are uneducated and earn very little in wages. Rafi’s sisters attend school in the village, but because Rafi is deaf, he needs to attend a special school. Through the Foundation for Children in Need (“FCN”), a small non-profit organization started by Tom Chitta and Geetha Yeruva, Angels from Heaven is sponsoring Rafi. Our donations provide clothes, books, tuition fees, food and medical care for Rafi, who is now in the 5th grade at the Navajeevan School for the Deaf. When we last heard from Rafi, he was doing well in school, very happy and excited about spending Christmas with his classmates and his family. We will follow Rafi’s progress and keep you posted. Every child deserves a future filled with hope and opportunity.
