Iris and Barkha

Barkha grew up in the Little White House at Raphael in India and has always dreamed of being a nurse. Her dreams have been made possible by the generosity of Iris Weld, a sponsor from Christchurch. Iris funds the cost of Barkha’s tertiary fees for her nursing degree.

Iris’ gift to Barkha is life changing and brings to mind the Chinese proverb — “You give a poor man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime.”
