How has this gift changed their lives?
Karuppiah got a chance to taste alcohol at the age of 17 and he doesn’t remember how long it took him to become an alcoholic. Now at the age of 47, he regrets that 15 glorious years of his life was drowned in the alcohol bottle. Those 15 years is something he doesn’t want to think about because poverty crept into his life and his health deteriorated. 

World Vision helped rehabilitate him. He was admitted in the Trichy de-addiction centre and World Vision took care of his complete treatment cost.  Now, apart from working as a Tank Operator, he is also a farmer. He cultivates corn in his farms and has a pair of cows. His hard work after he became sober brought a remarkable change in his life and family. He now owns a house and a piece of land where he grows corn. His elder son is a Marine Engineer in Hyderabad and his daughter after completing B.Ed is working as a teacher.

There are more people like Karuppiah, who need help in coming out of this habit. The de-addiction programme takes 21 days and costs Rs. 6000 in Tamil Nadu. Please contribute to save lives of many people like them.
