Below is the email I received from Dickson, our Kenyan Director of New Hope Children, regarding the rescue of Susan and Ivonne - two sisters who have been bounced around and forced to the streets. Unfortunately, this is not an unusual occurrence in areas like ours where mothers find themselves with too many mouths to feed and no resources to feed them. As you can imagine, the streets are not a safe place for any child, but especially young vulnerable girls. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter of Susan and/or Ivonne to keep them out of harms way and in shelter; receiving food, education and new hope. You can contact us here to set up support or go directly to our donate page where you'll see their images. Thank you, RJ
Greetings from Kenya.
I hereby bring to your attention of a disappointing story of two girls rescued by their Aunty in Kitale town 325kms from lodwar last week. A lady once touched by grace found her sister who was defeated by caring her nine children. Two of her girls become street girls and therefore when their aunt went to her sister found the children in the street and so was touched to stay with them. She brought them to lodwar to stay her in her house.
When reaching Lodwar, her husband was also moved and accepted to stay with the kids. After two days the husband changed his mind and told his wife the children back to their mother which is back to the streets. So this lady came to my office today and made also cry. She was willing to share the little but now the husband who is a drunk and the army officer has given her one week to take the children back to kitale.
Rach, its challenging to have this girls in our compound as we need to buy new mattresses, bed and new budget. i suggest for God's sake, we absorb these and trust, I will try my best to have them get some resources locally from my friends as we trust God for breakthrough.
