You can help Shalom break free from a cruel cycle of poverty and disability, for good
Every day, Shalom sits alone on the veranda, playing with her doll. She’s no longer able to play with the other children.
Instead, they jeer at her: Eh Shalom talaba! Oh, Shalom is blind!
Her mum Fridah says,
“The other children won’t play with her. Everything happens too fast for her. She is ignored and knocked down. She cries and comes to me, and plays in solitude.”
Play is a critical part of childhood, because it teaches children how to socialise and interact with others. If Shalom doesn’t get the sight-restoring surgery she needs, she could be held back for the rest of her life.
You can help Shalom SEE, and SUCCEED.
It’s not just play that Shalom is missing out on. Her teachers told Fridah to take Shalom out of school, because she can no longer see the blackboard.
If Shalom cannot get back to school, what chance does she have of an education, gaining skills, and earning a living?
Without help, Shalom will remain trapped in a cruel cycle of poverty and disability.
Please help Shalom break free from poverty and disability by making a kind gift today.
