Family for Children - Rose

Rose (not her real name) first came to the streets in 2011 then aged 8 years after her parents separation due to alcohol abuse by her mother which resulted into the father relocation to Nairobi ( Kenya Capital)  with a new wife he had just married.

Due to lack of food and care; Rose decided to look for food in dumb sites in town with her siblings aged 6 years and 4 years. They would go to school in the morning, go to town after school and later go back home before dark, after some time stopped going to school completely and fully joined the streets

Child Rescue Kenya street outreach team spotted them and from interractions and follow up to their home it was established that they had no food, the mother was always drunk and would not care for them and the environment at home was extremely unconducive to children because in her drunken stupor she would entertain male guests in thier single room house in the presence of Rose and other children on occasions they came home.

Child Rescue Kenya through the government department of Children services rescued Rose and her other 2 siblings and placed them in our Liyavo Child Care centre and embarked on serious working with Rose's Mother to help her out of alcohol addiction and possible reunification of  the family.

Rose’s mother has undergone support to help her reduce drinking, she has tremendously improved and now Rose's Father occasionally visits her. The father has also been engaged by CRK's Family worker and has started to change his attitude towards his wife and promises to work hard to support his family.

In this remarkable improvement Child Rescue Kenya enrolled Rose in an informal skills school that is near her home and with constant support and visits they seem to be getting along well

Thank you so much for your continued support.
