    Sofia is one of six girls, who were living happily with their parents. One day men broke in to their home and killed their parents infront of the girls.


    The three older girls were able to stay and work in the village but for Sera, Sofia and toddler Faith alternative support needed to be found.


    An orphanage took the youngest child, Faith and Footprints were contacted to see if they could help. Sera and Sofia came along to join the Footprints family.


    Sofia is a quite girl, with a beautiful smile and caring personality. It took time for her to settle in but she is delightful and working hard at school, she always has her hand up!

    Sofia has made lots of friends and is popular at Footprints.


  • This is what living at Footprints achieves!

    This is Sofia now.


    Recently a  heart-warming event took place.  Many of the local childrens homes organise events and Footprints attended a sports day. Whilst there Sera and Sofia  noticed their younger sister, Faith. They clung to each other all day. When returning to Footprints Kerry and Patrick had a long descusion and decide to offer Faith a place with her siblings. The other childrens home agreed that this would be good for the girls, so on Saturday 10th September 2016 Faith joined her sisters at Footprints - the youngest siblings will now grow up together.


    The three girls are very close and smile every day. Sofia has made some very close friends and enjoys life.
