Bittersweet; Different Strokes of Life. Success story of CAL Bank’s orphanage project
CAL Bank Limited - 10 June, 2010
No matter where a life is born; in the forest or a ghetto, poverty or dirt, love can still make a difference. Love lifted me from the bottomless valley of self pity, depression and dejection to the highest mountain of self actualization and fulfillment through the love showed me by CAL Bank. To be born in a slum never means to die in a gutter, of what benefit would be a life born and lived in a slum? What legacy can such a life leave for posterity? Your guess is right as good as mine. I lived in a slum for almost 17 years and I say without hesitation that life lived and ended in a slum is a complete waste and a living hell.
