07/07/2019 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Alvaro is one of several young survivors of a 2016 church bombing in Indonesia. He sustained severe burns from the bombing, primarily on his head. As a result, he has required extensive medical care over the past three years. Over the years, ICC has supported his family, and those of other injured children from the church, to aid in their recovery. Most recently, ICC assisted with the costs of transportation necessary for Alvaro to obtain surgery abroad.
By God’s grace, Alvaro is back into the normal swing of life by going to school and spending time with friends and family. Although he will eventually need another surgery, he is well on his way to recovery. While we cannot erase the memories of the bombing that this young boy lives with, we pray that this gesture will help him realize that he has brothers and sisters around the world who are cheering him on in his recovery.
