The Gift Of A Bathroom July 12, 2012 – Posted by rajaratnamjones
They were a family of nine; the father, mother, two boys, and five girls. The father worked as kitchen cleaner at a local school and the rest of the family help supplement his income by cleaning people’s yards. They were a very poor family.

Then the father lost his job at the school!

He asked that I take him on to clean our yard. Realizing his situation, I offered him the job. He and his family came to our house three times a week to clean the yard.

Early one morning the father suffered a stroke and died in the hospital. The poor family had lost their main bread-winner. The oldest boy had just completed school and was getting ready to go to college. The others were just little kids.

We stepped up and did all our best to help make sure the family got their education, and provided some daily needs, like clothes, and so on.

I visited this family once and came to understand that they did not have a toilet in their home. Imagine! A mother, a fifteen year old girl, and four smaller children without a toilet or bathroom!

One of my friends came to my house and I told him I wanted to do something about this. He provided some money and, together, we built a bathroom and a toilet for this family.

This random act of kindness brought a lot of smiles and happiness to the family.
