Chandra used to work in construction in Hong Kong. One day, she had a serious injury at work that injured her spine. She was put on bed rest, not able to work or even walk for 9 months. After major surgery, Chandra had to relearn walking, step by step. As she worked towards her rehabilitation, she joined a friend attending a sewing class from Inner City Ministries, an organization that supports the Nepalese community in Hong Kong. With the mentorship of ICM teacher, Sarah, Chandra has become a skilled seamstress, creating beautiful dresses that are worn by young girls in Nepal, Uganda, and India.
“Although I am not completely healed, I am really happy that God is using us to help people through our sewing ministries. I believe that one day I will be completely healed. I am so blessed by this ministry, not only me, but God is pouring out his blessings to the nation by this ministry.”
Barefoot Love was able to encourage Chandra to keep persevering and being a blessing, through the purchases of our cards.
