We can say in, no uncertain terms, that these past months have been some of the most trying times in the history of TLC. We have been pushing ourselves harder than ever to focus on what our organisation needs to continue providing the much needed support to the little heroes that call TLC home. It has been a difficult road, but through the struggle we have seen amazing acts of kindness and generosity that have helped us along to a point where we see the light of our future glimmering before us again.
We are immensely humbled and grateful to each person who had walked this journey with us in person or in spirit. All the individual acts of support, messages, prayers, donations and helping hands of those rooting for us were a powerful gift in carrying us through. While we still struggle with a financial shortfall every month we are pleased so say we can revise our six month timeline and will be going forward to continue growing our financial sustainablity to continue serving the vulnerable little lives of our communities for as long as we are needed.
Some updates -
Over the last couple of months we have placed 2 of our older children into homes. It is always such a struggle to readjust as a family - especially for their little peers, we know that families are the best place for a child, but it's not always easy to explain this difficult reality to little hearts and minds. <3 This is a big reason why we try so hard to make each child's placement into a forever family as rapid and responsible as possible. Unfortunately the legal and bureaucratic system we function in is not as consciensious.
We have taken in 5 newborns in the last 3 months. Our hearts are filled with the joys and heartache that we experience in the beautiful yet tragic moments of these new little lives joining our family.
To ensure that we continue to be the safe, loving, intemediary space that these little lives so desperately need, over the coming months our board and management team, along with a specially appointed professional consultant, we will be strategising and setting in motion some big plans to strengthen TLC going into the future. We hope to have some exciting updates for you in our next report!
Again, we are so incredibly grateful to you for walking this journey along side us!
With Hope and Gratitude, Faith Abrahams
