We recently caught up with Bala to find out how he is doing and to disburse his cheque to him. We understand from him that the halfway house has placed him for employment and he is now working in a hotel as a cleaner! Bala is extremely thankful for the help that he has received through this period since he just started working. However, things are not as rosy at home, as his elderly father suffered a heart attack recently. As his parents used to manage their own stall prior his heart attack, his mom has also stopped working in order to take care of Bala's dad. While it it is not easy for the family, we hope that Bala's family can remain strong through this difficult period.
