“I need a sponsor”

Brighton lives with his mother and older sister in a one-room home in Kibera. Brighton’s mother is HIV+ and this causes significant difficulties for the family. Without medication, she is often too sick to work but, if she buys the medication, there is little money remaining for food.

Brighton was unable to attend school as it was impossible to afford the fees. On hearing of the family’s circumstances, Brighton was offered a place at the Future Stars school. As a result of the late start to his education, he is significantly behind other children of his age. He also struggles to concentrate on his lessons at times but is beginning to benefit from the structure of school. He is a bubbly, affectionate child who always has a smile for everyone.

Surgery for 11-year-old abuse survivor

Musa is an 11-year-boy who was orphaned in a road accident whilst still a toddler. Taken in by family in the Kibera slum, he was then subjected to horrific physical and psychological abuse including having his arm broken and receiving no medical care.

Musa is now in need of surgery to correct deformity caused by the mis-alignment of bones in his arm due to it not having been set after a break.

We need to help this young boy. His life has already provided him with more challenges than anyone should face in a lifetime. Surely we should do what we can to ease any further suffering?
