For generations, those hands have worked, and worked hard. They have created meals out of nothing and scrubbed dirty dishes. They have scraped the last bit of food for their children, and pressed their stomachs so the hunger goes away. They have begged on streets, and gathered scraps of metal to sell. They have administered first aid, and wiped the fevered brows of the children. They have helped deliver their neighbour's babies, and wiped tears when people have died.
Those hands have always worked. Today, those hands are learning a skill that will transform the life of their family forever.
