When Zainabu was raped by her step-father, he escaped justice and promptly skipped town. Mysteriously, Zainabu’s mother also disappeared, leaving her daughter with a neighbour.
This month, Kijana Kwanza is launching its annual appeal to protect vulnerable children in the community – either by keeping families together so that children are not abandoned due to poverty or by recruiting a foster family to look after them.
It costs £50/$65 per month to sponsor a child in foster care, and we have over 40 children and young people waiting.
Visit kijana-kwanza.org/mychild to sponsor a child.
