New children continue to find refuge in Kasisi… For the past few days it has been home to three siblings: twins Ewdard and Sydney and their younger brother Joseph.
Watching the calm with which the boys are slowly settling into Kasisi, it is hard to imagine the drama they have lived through up to now. Their homeless grandmother brought them to social services and disappeared. We know nothing about the boys, except that their parents are dead. We do not know where they lived, how long they wandered around with their grandmother, whether they ever had their own home or even their own bed. Even their age is unknown. Documents from social services say the older ones are 7 years old, but they claim to be 11.
The boys still need a few good days to open up. When they feel safe, we will probably find out more about their story. We have seen so many childhood tragedies that we know how much they might have suffered… For the time being, we have launched our social inquiry, maybe we can find the grandmother. One thing is certain: the boys’ place is not on the street.
Now we will try to do what Kasisi does best: give them a childhood and a HOME.
We hope that although just a short while ago the world was unkind to Edward, Sydney and Joseph, today they will find friends among you, thanks to whom they will learn what a beautiful place it can be.
Eva and James are our medical students – talented, hardworking and grateful for every little support. They know that thanks to you they have been given a life opportunity. Now they can lead their lives as they dreamed of.
Today we ask you to join the fundraiser for the next semester of their studies. Curriculum – not funding – should be the only thing for our children to worry about. Let’s make sure they have a place in the medical world!
