Special on Sunita Paramanik
Sunita Paramanik. What is so special
• She is smart.
• She is beautiful
• She is intelligent
• She is joyful
• She smiles
• She believes in Christ
She may end up begging on
streets as many in India.
May be you are not a
doctor but I hope you can
see the deformities in her.
She stays in a orphanage in
India. It is the only hope
she has for a better
education, comfort and a
chance to make something
better of her life. She can
and has the potential to be
a lawyer, doctor or a
engineer. Isn't that what
we dream for our own kids?
But she can only be what
she wants to be if we give
her what she requires.
So what are we as
Christians supposed to do?

Why should we take this
chance to make a change
in her and in life for many
as she is?
Jesus would have healed. Maybe some of us can and some of us can’t. So what? We
stop thinking about her. Shut our hearts. We believe “no”. Would you do the same for
your kid. I am sure “not”. We here in Compassion ministries and God squad believe may
be you do not have the healing power but you do have the power to love ad supply the
needs. Does that mean just money, “no”. We believe in the power of love. So we are
praying for true followers of Christ who would demonstrate His love no matter what it
takes. We are looking for volunteers and donors who would help us supply the needs of
kids such as Sunita.
We in India with Compassion and God squad are dedicated to bring forth the glory of
Jesus. Yes we do not have great funds, but we know that what we are doing is
something very precious to our Lord. Isn't it something great when you know that what
you are doing is something so precious to God? Right now we are facing financial
problems. We have no specific funding. But we refuse to give up, because we know God
will supply. We do not want to lose this chance to make the difference in the life of these
kids because we know he is watching over us and the Bible says (Train up a child in
the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.) ( Proverbs:
If you are reading this and if you think God is calling you, please join us to work for his
glory, do not hold yourself back. Come and make the difference in whatever way God is
asking you to. Whether it be financially, or by the works of your hands. You can make a
change in a country where there are millions of false gods. Among all these false god’s
Jesus will shine through us. We don't want to give up this chance. Do you want to?
About Sunita and our Orphanage.
Sunita is one of the 36 children that are in our Orphanage. If you have any idea
about India, especially the interior part of India, you will know how poverty and
deformity can be seen as a curse. On top of this in a men's world, if you are a
girl, poor and with deformities you would find yourself In the darkest part of the
world. It takes courage and people like you and us to bring them out of that dark
and show them the light. Show them that they deserve more than what they have
or allowed to have. Sunita is now 5 years old. She has two brothers. One of her
brothers has a deformed hand and also lives in the orphanage. When she was
just a couple of years old, doctors In India tried to fix her feet by forcing them
straight and putting them in tight plaster casts. But this didn't work. We have
been trying to contact good doctors In India and USA but so far we have no
reply. Her little feet are not the only deformities Suita has, but if she can walk and
stand she will have a brighter future. We don’t know if her feet can be fixed or
how much will it cost or if someone would want to do it for free. Even if she can’t
be healed physically we can make sure that kids like Sunita gets a better future.
OUR IMMEDIATE NEEDS FOR THESE KIDS
FOOD: Since the Organization that was supporting the orphanage stopped funding In
2008 after the agreement terminated. The orphanage has been struggling to
maintain the 3 meals a day. It is the grace of god that the brothers and sisters
involved try very hard to keep the food coming in. Janice and the members of
Godsquad have been helping the children with what ever fund she and the
Godsquad could come up with.
BEDS: Lack of funds have also contributed to the accommodation by not having better
beds for the children where they can sleep well. Lack of Warm blanket during the
winter season is a challenge for the children. During the summer it is tough
without a fan. Our thanks to the Godsquad and sister Janice who donated 4 fans
for the children to save the children from terrible heat last year
WATER: The only form of water they have is to pull it out of a well and use it. Then if they
wish to go to the toilet they have carry the water in a bucket and carry it to the
toilet., which is not easy for a kid of 4 to 5 years. not to mention the danger of
hurting themselves in a hurry. A water pump and a proper pipe lines to the toilets
could solve the issue of children hauling and pulling out water from the well.
EDUCATION: Books are expensive, so they sometimes share books. There is a great need of
Christian books for the children so that they can read bible stories. Teachers are
not always available and since we are unable to pay them on regular basis, some
find it hard to stay.
The Compassion Ministries and the Godsquad have joined together in a effort to provide for
these orphans like Suita since January 2008. We do not have r.egular funds coming in from
any organization. From January the funding stopped from the previous sponsor. Our only
source of income is the students attending the school from the village and surrounding area.
The cost of supporting these children for their basic needs is approximately $15 per month for
each child or about $510 per month.
Our fervent prayer is for these children is that they would not only be provided with their basic
needs but be blessed with important things such as books, medical help, toys, etc.
Volunteers who can show them love and care in anyway they can will be ideal. For this to
happen, however, facilities must be acquired and volunteers must be aware of extreme
conditions such as heat, humidity, mosquitoes and the lack of any modern tools.
The country is beautifully scenic with green fields, ponds ad volcanic peaks. Though a mostly
Hindu population, Christians are speckled throughout the area.
The languages spoken there is Bengali, and Hindi. Many of the schools are now teaching
English. So often you will need a child to translate for you. This area is remote where the
nearest medical facility is Jhalda 15 Km or Purulia 45 Km.
However volunteers may opt to live in Purulia which has a little better conditions and most of
the Godsquad team members live there and travel back and forth. Electricity comes and goes
so often and a generator is required for electrical needs.
There are many challenges but where there are challenges there are blessings too. For the
most part it is a safe area for Christians. The Godsquad and the Compassion ministry will
always be there with their full support with sincere and warm hearts.
