August 2019 Bengao Joined Footprints
After 3 months of investigations Bengao and his sister Abigail joined Footprints. Patrick, Aunty Diane and our social worker Alex, made the journey, by foot in to the forest to the home of the children's Aunty Milka (who had herself walked the 6km to Footprints on three occasions to plea for help.)
The children's mum had been killed and they had been taken in by their aunt. With 8 people living in the two room dwelling, with mud floors, no sanitation or financial support, the conditions were unbelievable.
So the children have joined us at Footprints.
Life was pretty grim for Bengao and his sister Abigail, before they came to live at Footprints.
They will now have many opportunities in life.
Three Months Later...........November 2019
Having his face painted and enjoying life, playing with cars, at Footprints with his new family.
