Could You Commit To Help These Centres Continue Their Vital Work?
“We have worked alongside the church in taking care of three children, allowing them to stay at the Centre for an indefinite time. We couldn’t say ‘No’ to the church because the situation was critical.
The children were living on the streets in Dushanbe until we met them and took them to the Hope Centre. They lived on an abandoned construction site and were not eating every day. Both the mother and the stepfather were addicted to alcohol. The dad was getting food from refuse dumps, but he did not provide for the children. When we admitted them, the three of them were very happy. They said they couldn’t remember how long it had been since they had slept on a bed, eaten a hot meal, or worn a clean shirt.”
