One little boy is an orphan. His mother died in 2008 from kidney failure whilst his father passed away in June this year. For a short time he lived with neighbours before arriving at the Father Ray Drop-In Center.
These six young children now have a home.
A young girl does not know where her parents are. They abandoned her with her grandfather, but after a fire that destroyed the hovel they lived in she, like many others, was dumped at the Father Ray Drop-In Center.
The Father Ray Drop-In Center is a temporary place to stay; children and teenagers are assessed until a permanent place of residence can be found, with many of the younger children finding a place at the Father Ray Children’s Village.
But these young children have not just found a house to live in, they now have a home.
On arrival at Marigold House these six nervous youngsters were met by the lady who will take care of them, who will cook their meals, who will give them support, who will love them and whom they will call ‘Mother’. They will become a family, brothers and sisters to each other, and grow up in a loving environment where they can reach their best potential.
