Medicine Hat Building Expert – Gary Demke

Thank you very much for considering a contribution to Life Link International. Because of people like you, we can make a difference in the lives of people less fortunate than ourselves.

I thought that you might be interested in knowing a bit about our organization: how we came to be and our present project. It started back in January 2008. We, Randy and Grace Liske were part of a short term mission trip to India. There we visited Gotlam in the province of Andra Pradesh. This is the poorest province in India. We stayed at the Bridge of Hope complex run by Benjamin Yejjala. Benjamin is the most gracious man you’ll ever meet. He takes underprivileged children who have been orphaned or abandoned by their parents into his dormitory. He feeds them, looks after them and educates them.

One day Benjamin took us to a village close by. There we toured some of the huts that people lived in. They had hardly anything in the way of worldly possessions. There was a large crowd of people gathered around us and in this crowd we noticed a small girl scooting along the ground. Her one leg was badly deformed with her foot actually twisted the opposite way than normal. Benjamin explained that there were a lot of birth defects due to malnutrition. Grace asked if this little girl could have the operation to fix her leg. Benjamin said she could but her family could not afford it. We asked how much and he said about $500.

To hear more about this trip, please contact the Amron office for details.
