Another Child Reunited With Her Family!

We recently welcomed Mary to our Ewafe project Home. After her mum fell ill her parents struggled to pay her school fees and she dropped out of school. A neighbour offered to pay for her to attend school in Kampala, and in return for working for her offered to pay her mum's medical bills. However when Mary arrived in Kampala, the neighbour forced her to work as a maid without taking her to school, without paying her and without helping with her mum's medical bills as promised. The neighbour eventually kicked Mary out of her home and she ended up living on the streets. Mary was frightened so she took herself to the local police station who referred her to our Ewafe project. We were able to provide her with food, shelter, clothing and medical care.  Last month our social workers were able to successfully locate Mary's family! They had not seen her for 2 years and were so happy to see her again. The first few visits have gone really well and Mary will be permanently resettled back with her family before the end of the year. We are also planning on getting her sponsored to go to school.
