Murad lives with his brother, sister, and his parents in northern Bangladesh in the Naogaon district. The family lives in a one-room hut made of bamboo, wood, and mud. They get their drinking water from a local well. Murad’s mom is a housewife and his father is a daily laborer going out each day to look for farm work. Although he works very hard, this type of work does not earn a large income and the family struggles to afford their daily needs. With support Murad will be able to continue to go to school. Art class is Murad’s favorite subject.
An education is so important because it helps to break the cycle of poverty and give hope for a brighter future. Sponsorship provides children with an education, a school uniform and supplies, a warm meal, medical care, and they are lovingly taught the Word of God at the International Needs Naogaon Slum School in Bangladesh.
