Irene and her twin sister, Teresa, were abandoned by their mother shortly after birth. They were brought to Kasisi by their uncle, who continues to visit them occasionally. As a result of the enormous amount of trauma they had experienced at such an early developmental stage, they were very timid when they first got here. We had to work hard to gain their trust and make them feel safe. They’ve since settled in to their new surroundings but still require a lot a gentle approach and a lot of affection. Irene is more sensitive and withdrawn than her sister.
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!
