Imdad turns 17

Imdad’s mother seemed to shine with happiness today – she just couldn’t hide her pride in her son. Her love and care for him is really beautiful to see. She has had such a patient and generous heart throughout her whole time here – the waiting, the surgery, the long days in lockdown – her presence seems to lift the whole community.

What I really love is seeing this same heart in Imdad. He is quite a quiet young man, and yet he has a deep kindness and gentleness to everyone around him. It was lovely to see him happy and smiling today, chatting to Khalid and enjoying the party.
It is really good to see how much his health has improved. We thank God for Imdad’s life and it was such a blessing to celebrate this wonderful young man together.
Happy birthday Imdad!
