We do not know exactly when the girl was born, but she was about 4 years old on the day she was taken in to Kasisi. She suffers from cerebral palsy and is blind. Her mother left her daughter with the grandmother and lives on the street. The grandmother was unable to provide adequate care for her granddaughter, so she brought her to the social care centre, from where Grace came to us.
Despite her disability, she is doing well. She is in kindergarten, has exercises with music and sensory activities. She moves around in a special wheelchair.
Tests have shown that Grace has limited vision. She has physiotherapy classes every day. She has settled in at Kasisi. She does not speak independently, she repeats what she hears. She is a lovely little girl.
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?
