Today Kenson is 12 years old
In a recent project report we explained how we’re raising funds this Holiday season to provide 1 more year of security for the children at the HTDC orphanage after our charity closes. We then shared the story of Fritz to highlight one of the children your donations will help support.
In this report we wanted to highlight one of the other children who relies on the orphanage for a safe home and to meet their other basic needs.
Kenson (pictured) is now 12 years old. Kenson was born in Port-au-Prince but there are very few records about his past. His mum brought him to HTDC because she had no place to live. Kenson was very sad when he arrived. At first he was often found crying or sleeping while adjusting to his new environment.
Today, he still misses his mum, but you will more often hear his giggles and see his beautiful smile. He loves it when visitors come, and is sorry when they leave, but he’s smart and does very well in school.
For those who poured love into him those early days it’s amazing to see where Kenson is today!
It’s also been amazing for us to see Kenson to grow over the years and we’re including some past photos in this report so you can see how he’s changed.
If you can, we’ll hope you’ll consider making a further gift to this project. In doing so, you’ll help ensure that Kenson has the safe home and care he needs for 1 more year.
You can find out more about our plans to close down IDV on our website, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. I’d be delighted to hear from you as always.
