A cocoon of love woven with Sister Mariola’s arms. Nothing more is needed now. The rejection, loneliness and fear encoded in Moses’ emotions slowly melt away. This is how this world had welcomed him, trying to prove that there was no place for him in it.
Abandoned far from home shortly after birth, the boy went through everything no child should ever have to experience. Instead of his mother’s arms surrounding him with security, he was surrounded by rough grass growing by the river in the bush. Fortunately, someone realised something was wrong when Moses’ mother returned alone to the village. The search began. It was successful. The boy was immediately taken to hospital and from there to Kasisi. Here, at HOME, we are waiting for EVERY child and do everything to make them believe that there are plenty of people in this world ready to embrace them (even if only from a distance) and show them how much they care.
Another moment in the sister’s arms and our little one’s face starts to beam. It’s as if he’s trying to tell us that this is what he’s been waiting for since he was born. We know that things will be different from now on and that we will move heaven and earth to make sure he never feels the way he did when he came into this world again. Or do any of you have free, open arms today to take little Moses into them and start down a new and better road with him? That is something we think would be extraordinary. After all, he got the name Moses for a reason.
The metal cots and worn-out mattresses have lulled generations of Kasisi kids to sleep, but are now in desperate need of replacement.
Our dream is to make the babies’ bedrooms look like a truly homely, safe environment that is associated with warmth. Will you help us make this dream a reality?
