years of supporting his family and providing food and shelter
In 2015, Dharm Veer, a 32-year-old husband and father, moved his family from India to Nepal to make a better living. En route, his box of shoe cobbler’s tools – the source of his livelihood and ability to feed his family – were stolen. He was able to build up a small kit of supplies, with which he was shining Dean’s shoes while he told his story. Dean was moved by Dharm’s dedication and drive to send his four children to school. On behalf of HOP, Dean donated $500, which allowed Dharm to purchase a new box of cobbler’s tools and to once again be able to provide for his family. HOP has also sponsored Dharm’s children for the last three years at the Little Angel boarding school, at the cost of $2,500/year.
HOP hopes to continue to support Dharm’s children through school.
