MARY’S SORROW AND HOPE: WHY WE HAVE TO HELP MARY AND ALL THE GIRLS LIVING IN SLUMS

14 Apr

On the morning of the 3rd of April, 2017, a slum in Susan’s Bay near Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, was set on fire by strangers. The fire forced 85 families to leave their homes. Mary’s family was one of them.

The residents survived, but lost all their belongings.
Mary lost her  only toy, a small doll, which she got for Christmas from  our Desert Flower Foundation team, to the fire. 

Little Mary, 8 years old, was already on her way to school when the firestorm destroyed her family’s modest hut.

With the generous support of our donors, the Desert Flower Foundation is paying Mary’s school fees since 2015 and enables her to attend school every day.

Mary is a good student and loves going to school.
School is the only safe place for young Mary.

In the slums there is terror and violence.

A little girl’s life is worth nothing.

Crime and violence, especially  to girls and women are ubiquitous.

Even small girls are victims of cruel rapes. Many children are forced to prostitution. It is a living hell.

For Mary, her two sisters and the many little girls in the slums of Susan’s Bay the school is  a place of hope for a better and safer life.

Please support our Little Desert Flowers for Easter and give them the opportunity to a safer and better future with your donation!
