Here are some of the families helped through the house:
Mama Mary’s family
Mama Mary was attacked by polio when she was young and is now restricted to a wheelchair. She has five children. In a country with few jobs available, she lacked employment opportunities and was reduced to begging on the streets. Apart from the basic needs of shelter and food, we also provided a small loan for her to start her own small business.
Due to her special needs, we eventually moved her to a self-contained house nearby.
The Mohammed Girls
We took in the girls in right after their mother passed on in 2012. When tragedy struck, the children were left on their own with just an elder sister to care for them. The elder sister already had three of her own children and couldn’t care for the girls. The elder sister now has three of her children in our school.
