Starfish together with Thy Kingdom gives "LIFE"!

Paseka’s Story

Paseka often wondered why her family had been cursed. Her great-grandmother said it was because of... so many things. First, when she was still a little girl, her grandmother died. She never knew her father, but she remembers her mother cursing him on her death-bed. Paseka was only four years old when her mom died, leaving her and her two younger brothers to live with GogoMkhulu, their great-grandmother.

Things were really tough and often Paseka wished she could just die too. That was until Mama Thandi knocked on their door. GogoMkhulu is deaf, so Paseka opened the door to the beaming face. It turned out that Mama Thandi was from the organisation called Thy Kingdom Care Centre. She greeted GogoMkhulu with respect and explained that the organisation helps take care of children who find themselves in difficult situations.

Soon her brothers and Paseka were attending the Early Childhood Development Centre, getting two meals a day and were even helped with clothing. They brought the family food parcels every month and helped Gogo-Mkhulu receive a Child Support Grant (R1 300.00 a month for the three children.)

Paseka is now already in Primary School and is doing well. Mama Thandi is like a mother to her. She made sure Paseka and her brothers got vaccinated, got enrolled in school,  got health care services, and most importantly, made sure they know they are loved.
