Christine lost her sponsor a year ago – she was in year 3 of primary school. She wasn’t top of the class but was attending steadily when this happened. Can you imagine going to school one day, and not the next because you can’t pay?
Sad enough, but Christine had already lost her dad to HIV, and her mum rejected her thinking she too would be HIV+.
Her mum has since remarried twice and there are lots of younger siblings. The latest husband won’t have kids other than his own in the house, so Christine and other siblings are living with granny. Living with granny may be lovely, but it’s poverty-stricken.
A sorry start to a child’s life.
Doesn’t Christine deserve some hope? Sponsor her education for just £30 per month, and we’ll ensure she has a good education, two meals a day, a school uniform, basic health care – and lots of hope.
