Ntombomzi was 12 years old and in Grade 3, but wasn’t attending school. Our Child and Youth Care workers found that her mother was unemployed and in poor health; the whereabouts of the father unknown. There was often no food at all. Ntombomzi became withdrawn, not even wanting to play with the other children at the safe park. She was also regularly sick, but there was never money to transport her to a clinic or hospital.
Thanks to donations like yours, we’ve been able to supply a food parcel when needed, support Ntombomzi at school and with homework, provide her with a school uniform, and enrol her in the safe park life skills programme. She’s even become part of the Sarafina dance group.
The change in this one child is remarkable. But none of it would have happened without you. So thank you!
