This is Susan and Esther who live with their uncle at Katwikira within the Kibera Slums. Susan is in form one and Esther is in form two.
Unfortunately, their Uncle left the house in the slum with no prior notice about three months ago. This has left them unable to get to and from school and with no income. They have had to look for jobs such as washing peoples cloths and homes. Even when they are able to find such work they are not always paid and are sometimes asked for sexual favours before they are given the job and payment. This is obviously a heartbreaking situation.
Thankfully, one of our partners, Pastor Chris Okumu learnt about their situation and was able to rescue them and take them to the Soweto Academy boarding facility.
Susan and Esther are now safe and well and in an environment where they will be able to thrive. Please pray for them over the coming weeks and we hope too have an update to share with you soon.
