A call from Social Welfare
A CALL FROM SOCIAL WELFARE
Letty received a call from the social welfare office asking for help with a case of a little girl who was very ill in hospital with her mum. They were in hospital due to their awful living conditions. The mum had been living with an illness for a long time and as she did not have money for food she could not take her tablets, which led to her becoming increasingly sick. The next day I received a call saying her mum had passed away and the little girl aged 9, was left with nobody.
This little girl is Doreen. She has now been given a scholarship at a local boarding school, and thanks to £120 donation money, Street Children Iringa were able to provide her with everything she needs at her new school, making her feel special and equal to all the other students. We will continue to support her and she will come to visit us in school holidays.
