How has this gift changed their lives?
Sudamani was so addicted to alcohol that he was almost dead because of this habit. His addiction started when he was 20 years old and didn’t stop for 17 long years. During this period he sold and pledged everything he had to buy alcohol. Father to 3 children, he lost everything in those 17 dreadful years.

For the past 3 years Sudamani hasn’t touched alcohol. He gives credit to World Vision for helping him come out of his dreadful habit. When the Perambalur World Vision ADP volunteers met Sudamani in 2007, he was considered dead by his family and friends. Sick and in poverty neither he nor his family ever thought he would survive. World Vision after counseling him got him admitted at the Trichy De-addiction centre and paid for the complete treatment.

Looking back now, Sudamani can't believe that it’s his life which has transformed so much. Now Sudamani is a successful farmer. He cultivates corn in his fields and is happy that his life is now going steady after encountering lots of challenges. His son is studying Polytechnic and his daughter is studying in the 10th standard. He has constructed a new house. He understands that it was his own mistake that nearly ruined his life.
