brief impressions .
How high the need is and how important it is for us to be there is especially evident from the children's own stories.
We would like to introduce some of the children to you.
Amani unfortunately lives in an institution and not with his family as he should. He suffers from a skin disease that leaves him with an extreme form of eczema. His skin is sometimes so inflamed that it even gives him blisters and extreme fever. Despite the pain, he is always there for you when you need something. He is the sweetest and most helpful boy. Before he came to the rescue center, he and his two sisters lived with his grandparents who lovingly cared for him but had no money for medication, let alone a monthly check up at a specialist.
Dorcas came to us as a withdrawn and shy 14-year-old girl. While her mother was at work, Dorcas was caring for her siblings. This resulted in her not being able to attend school. But what made her situation most unsafe was the abuse by her stepfather. Despite the fact that her stepfather had since been convicted of his actions, during the rehabilitation process Dorcas’ mother ultimately proved unable to offer Dorcas a stable future. Dorcas now lives with her father and his new girlfriend and goes back to school.
