The rescue centre also takes admissions whenever they are needed. Sometimes children in crisis are identified by other charities and agencies. Kibera’s tribal chiefs can also be relied upon to care for their tribe’s children and approach centres like Future Stars to ensure the children’s safety.
Previously, Vionza lived with her mother in Kibera following the death of her father. Sadly, her mother was also unwell and her condition continued to deteriorate.
On January 1st 2020, her mother decided that she was too unwell to continue her life in Kibera and she wanted to return to the village where she has family to care for her.
The tribal chief approached Future Stars to ask if Vionza could become a resident in order that she can continue her education and have everything she needs for a healthy, happy childhood.
There are many children at Future Stars who would love a sponsor like Vionza’s. Could you be that special person who supports a child and ensures their development? Sponsorship costs just over £1 a day and makes a huge difference to the future of one of these vulnerable children.
