A family still holding it together

Last year we told you about a family, a dad and three children, Asksed now aged eleven, Silbert aged eight and Bitkan aged four. We explained their plight and how we arranged for them to go to school and day care following their mother’s death from TB. Our biggest concern was Bitkan who clung to her sister Asksed afraid to let go. Well a year on and all three children are doing very well, Silbert and Bitkan are enjoying life in the day care centre and Asksed has been able to go to school in the compound so she can continue to take her younger brother and sister to day care. All this has been possible because of your donations. Asksed is a little behind other children of her age due to the schooling she missed but is enjoying it. We did notice that all three children were still wearing the same clothes we left them last year, but this was soon rectified.
