Date of Arrival at Mercy Mission: June 2008
Subhadra’s father died and her mother left her and married another man. Being totally neglected by her mother, she was looked after by her grandmother for a while. Then her grandmother died and there was no one to care for her.Subhadra is a bit shy but she is a friendly and lovely young girl. She loves spending time with her friends at Mercy Mission. Although she was very malnourished when she was brought to the mission, now she is healthy. Subhadra’s favorite subject is math, and she wants to be a doctor. Her favorite color is sky blue, her favorite fruit is mango, and her favorite pastime is reading storybooks and the Bible. Subhadra said her dream is to one day build a hostel for girls much like Mercy Mission. When asked what she likes most about living at Mercy Mission, she replied, “Good education and teaching good discipline and the prayers.” She said by “good discipline” she meant good lessons and how to respect elders.
