World vision has help the primary school to level the ground, build a water pump, construct a wall for safety and security and most importantly provided school materials, food and nutrition for the children.
So that they can have place to train, especially in sports. And I felt so proud to know that, they have always been the champion among the 42 schools in the area of sports.
They performed dances for us, and it was a joy to see them sing for us, we really enjoyed that.
The tragedy of HIV/AIDS
Just about a week ago, World Vision got to know of this 20-year old young man, taking care of his family of six = the grandpa, grandma, mother, 2 sisters and himself. The father committed suicide over the pressures of being HIV-positive and couldn’t handle the burden of taking care of the family. The mother who is also HIV-positive, is quite ill.
The family lives in 2 simple huts next to a railway station.
And all the while, this young man worked as a hard laborer on a farm.
Right now, the situation is still not so good, but World Vision has just started to help them as they are able.
In a month’s time, World Vision will help him to open a sundry store next to the railway station. And will help to take care of his mother and the grandparents’ health, and as a first step, see that the sisters get an education.
And we feel that, at least everything will be okay for them.
Light at the end of a Tunnel
At the end of the day, we met Rehenna. She was a World Vision sponsored child for the last 13 years.
She came from a poor family, but with the help of World Vision, she was able to continue her studies, and now able to pursue her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in Logistic.
We are thankful that World Vision Child Sponsors have given these children hope and success.
Conclusion of Day 2
Today, we have seen some very difficult stories, we see little children with so much energy, passion and hopes, we saw a family struggling to survive with the basics of healthcare and living in dire poverty, and we also saw a very successful child that has been blessed by World Vision.
