Agnes is a widow who is 90 years old and confined to a wheelchair. A member of her extended family had a habit of storing unwanted items and utilizing her house as a dumping site for many years and her whole yard was full to the brim with rusty and decaying rubbish covering every inch of it.
In the end, her neighbors lodged a complaint, and the local council warned to fine her $2,500 per day if the mess wasn’t cleaned up immediately.
Due to her advanced age and the fact that there was no one else in the area who could assist her, even her home had deteriorated into a hopeless condition.
Her roof was in disrepair, and animals were sneaking into the home via the broken windows and doors. Because she did not have any air conditioning in her home, it would get intolerably warm during the warm summer months.
It was impossible for her to clean up her yard on her own after the loss of her husband many years before and the fact that she was scarcely able to walk. Agnes reached out to Operation Blessing in a last-ditch effort to get aid.
This organization helps those in need by providing relief from natural disasters, health and medical treatment, assistance for those in need of food, care for vulnerable children and orphans, and community development.
They came to an agreement that they would clear up Agnes’ yard and take down the deteriorating shed as well as the trailer. They not only accomplished that, but also went above and above.
When Agnes stepped outside, she saw that other people had arrived to help. Volunteers who she had neither asked for nor anticipated seeing at the event.
It would seem that the team has requested further assistance! The community at large as well as the nearby universities both contributed their time as volunteers.
The group of volunteers started by cleaning up her yard, then they repaired her roof, created a new walkway leading up to her front door, built a new flower bed, and even installed a brand new air conditioner!
Agnes was overwhelmed with joy when she saw the changes made to her house. The new route made it easy for her to access and depart her home with her wheelchair, and the new air-conditioner would be a boon in the heat of the summer
Agnes is now free to go about her life without concern because to the efforts of the volunteers and she would often remark things like, “They’re angels, and I adore each and every one of them.”
