Mary is one of three siblings who came to Sonshine in January of 2017. The father died in June of 2016 then the mother abandoned the kids, they went to live with an aunt but she drank heavy and left the kids for days. It was discovered that a neighbor began horribly Mary.
Social Services immediately stepped in, removing all the children and asked Sonshine to care for them. They are safe now and on a long road of recovery.
Peter comes to us from a broken home full of pain and betrayal. He is the 2nd of 3 boys. His youngest brother is in an infant home for abandoned children and his oldest brother is with the mother but no one knows her location. His father has a brain injury and is incapable of caring for children but Peter is coming along great and really enjoying life for the first time, we are extremely happy to have this little guy in the Sonshine Family.
Kelvin and his twin brother were born in a very miserable environment. Their mother is not in her right mind and she doesn't know who the father is. Due to her mental problem the boys spent their life in the street, sleeping outside, eating dirty food that their mother collected from the trash bins.
Samwel came to Sonshine from a nearby village in May of 2013. He was abandoned by his mother and left at relatives who did not want to have him. They failed to provide proper clothes and only fed him beans and rice once a day.
We have had Samwel for over 6 years now. He is a peaceful boy and pleasant, we are happy he is part of our family.
Exaud and siblings all came to Sonshine in January 2017. They have lived through two tragedies at such a young age. Their father committed suicide through hanging himself. It was traumatic to the whole family but it was so difficult for their mother that she died from heart failure soon after.
Maureen and her brother came to Sonshine in March of 2018. Our staff was asked to accompany the Welfare director to investigate their situation. We discovered that their father had passed away about a year prior and the mother left them with neighbors, claiming she was going to find a new home in her village but she never returned.
Daniel came to Sonshine in 2014 with his sister Neema. They both expereinced extreme abuse and neglect from alcoholic parents, finally Social Welfare removed them from their home. Sonshine worked for many months to improve their health through extra attention, counseling and special diet. Their spirits were very broken during the first 6 months but we see a great healing in both of them since arriving.
