Tinumeren and Aosenla Imchen Ozukum

Tinumeren Ozukum: "It was in January 2015 when the Executive Director of Eliezer Children Home approached our family to take the responsibility of the Eliezer Children Home. This was a call from god to me and my wife to start a ministry. At that time, I was in Germany and my wife was in India with our one month old son. We did not have any financial support and we were hardly surviving for ourselves. Practically, it was very difficult for our family to accept this responsibility, but we were very touched by the testimony of these children. Many of them went through torture, hunger and humiliation before they were brought to our home."
