Peter* was an orphan. With no parents he was forced to live with his estranged sister. But Peter never felt safe – his sister’s husband was violet and would often scare Peter. Peter would often go without food, and be forced to scavenge on the streets. He was hungry, and without hope.
One day, we found Peter and offered him the chance to join our school feeding program, which was part of our child education sponsorship program. Peter was excited – for the first time he would be guaranteed a meal! He would happily go along to eat his breakfast – he could feel his strength regaining, his health improving and he was happy.
Skip ahead a few years – and the miracle of Peter is incredible/Peter’s world has changed profoundly. Not only has he finished primary school and graduated from high school. But with the support of the government, Peter was able to qualify for a scholarship and is now at university! In his excitement, all Peter can say is “Long live ADRA. My life will never be the same again.”
ADRA Kenya changes lives of many orphans and vulnerable children like Peter.
