I am Mark Ricktike Sarkar. I was born in 1987 and when I was only 10 months old my mother died. I had a very critical time when my father left me alone with my two and a half year old brother and went somewhere else and never came back to look after us. My older brother and I went to our uncle's home. Of course my uncle had a limited income to maintain his own family. We were an extra burden for them. My Uncle looked after us for years but it was too much for him so he sent us two brothers to different homes. I came to the HELP Samaritan Children's Home in 1998 and since then it has been my home. I am very happy living at this home because HELP Bangladesh provides all my needs. Here I have a great opportunity to study and now I am ready to sit for the grade 10 public exam, along with another 6 boys and 4 girls from the home.
Our Uncle David (Halder) did not only provide food, shelter, clothes, education and health care but he has been teaching us about the love of the Lord Jesus. So over the years I came to know Jesus and I love Him, and I have accepted Him as my personal Saviour. I was baptised by the Dr. Rev. Simon Sircar on 14 November, 2004. I am very grateful to Uncle David who helped me for the last 8 years. I am also thankful to the HELP organization as well as to my sponsor family for their love and financial help.
