Last month Marjorie Lunkuse, Wells of Hope Deputy Executive Director
traveled to Kenya and Francis Ssuubi, Wells of Hope founder traveled to Tanzania; in order to see the progress of Wells of Hope work there. They got to hear the stories and testimonies of the Wells of Hope families in Kenya Busia and Tanzania. The Children who were not in school are now in school receiving food, love, education, name it. The guardians said that the children couldn’t read, write or even speak before people, but are now doing all this.
We are extremely grateful to our friends and partners for always supporting the work Wells of Hope does in Kenya and Tanzania.
The grannies and moms are so thankful for the support they receive from Wells of Hope; they say that this has relieved them so much!!
During his trip Francis shared some highlights;
I talked with two women in Tanzania whose husbands are on death row. Amina one of the women says that when her husband got imprisoned she sold all their land to pay for legal expenses, she lost all the money, yet at the same time the husband was still given a death sentence. She has one child who is 7 years old; because she could not afford to stay with him, she took him to stay with her mom. She also says she didn’t tell her son what happened to the father, but the son kept asking and was always sad because the fathers of the children in the neighborhood would return home but for him his father never returned. Amina’s son later got to know from one of the neighbors children that his father was on death row. Amina’s son came home crying to ask the mother if that was true; Amina admitted and tried to counsel her son who was crying uncontrollably.”
We thank all our sponsors for their continued support.
