“Why would you want to help us?” Sveta asked. The grandmother hadn’t seen a lot of kindness lately. After war destroyed her home, she fled with her daughter and granddaughter a calmer area.

When a Christian aid worker offered to pay for the operation with BGR funds and other donations, Sveta was bewildered. From where did this kindness come?
