In poverty stricken areas parents struggle daily to care for their children. Often the parents are very sick or dying due to AIDS, an injury, TB, or another disease. This tragedy creates child headed households. It is exactly what it sounds like, children trying to provide for children. Hamisa Baku is one of the many young girls who are rescued from desperate situations where they are running from being married off too young, escaping FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), being rescued from child labor or child trafficking, or an abusive situation.But not without a scar,she contracted the HIV/AIDS from an abuser who is currently on the run.Living in our mission is an amazing change for her but we want to do more for her.
I decided to create this fundraising account to tell her story and show her that the world as not as cruel as she has always known it to be.That there is more to life than pain,hunger and discrimination.
Money raised will go towards her medication(ARV's),tution fees,clothes and her boarding.Meals and school supplies are already catered for.
Join me and my team in changing her and the rest of the girls lives.Help us give Hamissa a better life.
Nothing is too little.
