He now lives in a single room in what appears to be an abandoned building with 4 other orphans. The living conditions are unsanitary and dangerous. He doesn't have a bathroom, a kitchen or even a dresser. Any possessions he leaves out unsupervised are at constant risk of being stolen.
In spite of Ferat's circumstances he is warm, kind and always there to help his friends. He is a hard worker, often working several jobs and getting little rest. In the years my wife and I have known him, we have been humbled by his grateful, serving spirit.
It's true that there are a lot of people in need all over the world and you can't help everyone. As a wise man once told me "Do for one person what you wish you could do for everyone".
We have a God-sized goal of raising $23,000 to purchase a small studio apartment for Ferat to use indefinitly. The Albania Church of Christ (Kisha e Krishtere e Shqiperise) is donating a large portion of the funds and will manage the purchase if we can raise the money.
This is a great opportunity to make a real, tangible difference in the life of a well-deserving man - the home that he's never had.
Please consider even a small donation; helping restore hope and dignity to the life of Ferat.
