Cyril and Swiper
This month I would like to tell you the story about "Cyril and Swiper".
This story came to us via one of our partners,Kaeme. Kaemeseeks to build loving families, onechildat a time. They work on breaking down the barriers thatpreventorphaned or abandoned children from leaving institutions and entering family-based care. As part of this process,Kaemevolunteer teams work hand-in-hand with the Ghanaian Department of Social Welfare to survey orphanages country-wide as part of the Care Reform Initiative.
Cycil wrote this story about his encounter with a big, bad dog called Swiper. 'Swiper's a dog and he's huge and he's large and his barking makes Cyril feel scared'. His tale centers around facing his fear of Swiper while on an errand to buy fish from the market. Can you believe that Mama sent Cyril out to buy fish just after Swiper had cased him?
His story was turned into this amazing song by Jacob Chapman.
