Luyando was brought to Kasisi by her father after the girl’s mother died when she was just a few days old. She is sick and requires specialist care. In spite of her health problems, she is a very content girl. Every night when she is given medication, she kisses the sister on the cheek. She is full of energy, happy and outgoing – she can even be a bit boisterous.
She really enjoys meeting people. She is communicative and sociable. She is in the sixth grade. She has a hard time at school, but she tries. She often has ear problems and takes some medication every now and then.
She is in the fifth grade. She used to be in a special class, but she made great progress and was transferred to a regular class. She likes helping around the house, especially in the kitchen. She is also happy to lend a hand with other chores.
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?
