Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

A Timely Hand Of Deliverence (rescue)

I am Faith Michelle. I was abandoned at a very young age. I may not know if I was ugly or wicked as to qualify for such an amount of brutality but I was just dumped on the road in 2004 before a good samaritan picked me to seek for a rescue centre for me. Thanks to Victorious Children's Home. Its grasped the chance to receive me. it seems this Home for the merey they bestow on the needy they have been blessed mightily. They have never lacked provision for the over 80 children. Food, accommodation, security, love and care has become our assurance in this Home. Volunteers have made it a habbit to continually give to the Home. I must invite more Godly sponsors to be kind enough to follow suit because in so doing God will reward them in return.
