Hope in the Storm

Sunny concentrating on her homework

Early in the morning, the social worker received a phone call from MSM Community Common Good Partner, telling that 2 children under their long term care will have no one to take care of soon, because their father was going to be in custody. The two children had lived in unstable condition. With their father’s petition, "i-ro i-ro Children's Home", the Mustard Seed Mission community care base, promised to take care of Sunny and her elder brother.

The first time meeting the 7-year-old Sunny, she had warm smiles and bright eyes. She shared with the social worker "We can’t live at home as my dad was locked up because of his wrong deed." Sunny and her brother are children of single-parent family from remote areas. Their father, whose job is unsteady, has addiction to alcohol and tobacco. Due to his neglected parenting, the two children were already long cared by MSM Community Common Good Partner. The family's living environment was messy, and their clothes and quilts had not been replaced with new ones for years. Sunny has a poor lung function as result of long term exposure to second-hand smoke. She also has allergies and head lice; the bad smell of her body undermines her relationship with others; no classmates want to be friends with her, leaving her lack of self-confidence. Sunny has turned into sad "Cloudy".

Now, the first thing that Sunny does every day after returning i-ro i-ro Children’s Home is taking a bath. Moreover, Sunny is taught to tidy up the environment via doing houseworks. During the holidays, she is able to play ball outdoor with other children. The exercises help her to build physical strength and gaining self-confidence through interacting with others and expressing herself.

i-ro i-ro Children's Home is a community childcare institute that the Mustard Seed Mission cooperates with our Community Common Good Partners. Such cooperation enables children of dysfunctional or needy families to get proper care and life education including the basic self-hygiene and self-care, in the original community and environment. Through the interaction in schools, families and communities, the children’s character, academic learning, interpersonal relationship and parent-child relationship would be reconstructed or restored.
