Emmanuel found his way to Kasisi along with his brother, Isaac. The boys are with us because they were abandoned by their parents. First, their mother took off. She said she was going to buy fish in another part of the country and never returned. Their father soon followed suit. He left on the pretense of looking for his wife, and the boys were alone for the next few weeks. The only food they ate was what concerned neighbors were able to give them. Seeing that the situation was not getting any better, the neighbors made a call to social services. It was there that the boys were brought straight to us.
Santa Claus never had it easy in Kasisi 😉 Over 230 children live here. Sister Mariola has already rushed to his aid and is quietly preparing presents!
Many of us still leave a free seat at the Christmas Eve table. Let one of our children sit at it this year (at a distance, but very much for real) and invite them to the table today!
