Gladys is our House Mom! She has three young boys of her own and lives with her husband Dickson near the church where our children stay when they are off of school (4 months out of the year). Gladys preps all the children’s meals and cares for their daily needs.
Gladys was there from the very beginning. In the middle of the night towards the end of 2009, Gladys and a team from Pastor Joshua's church went out to the landfill to rescue the children. Since they knew they'd all be sleeping together in one area they decided to go around 2am. They woke the children up, brought them to the church, bathed, clothed and fed them. From that point on the childrens' lives have changed for the better and Gladys has become their new mom. They love, adore and respect her like no other.
Her husband, Dickson, also helps out with New Hope. As a boda boda (motor bike) driver, he's been known to make school calls when the children are sick or need supplies/help at school.
Together Gladys and Dickson have been a true blessing to New Hope Children. We can't thank them enough for the time, sacrifice, care and love they give to our New Hope Heroes.
