Angel – Angel has been with Mission:180 Children’s Homes since December 9th. We advertised that we needed 4 sponsors for her back in December however we only had 3 people sign up out of the 4 available slots so we are in need of 1 more sponsor for Angel at $40 per month. Angel (about 1 year) and her brother Samuel (4 years old) were signed over to Mission:180 by their mother (only 18 years old). She decided that she wanted nothing to do with her kids any longer and actually tried to kill them twice; once by strangulation and the second time by trying to poison them. Angel and her older brother Samuel (fully sponsored) have lived a very rough life in the few short years since they were born.
Mark – Precious little Mark came to Mission:180 several weeks ago. He was found by a Good Samaritan down inside of a pit latrine (a Kenyan outhouse) when they went to use the wash room. He was pulled up from all of the filth and rushed to a local hospital. Once at the hospital the police were notified and they called Mission:180 to see if we were able to take Mark in. Once Mark was released from the hospital he came directly to M:180. Since Mark is about 1 year old he did not know what his name was so he was given the name Mark by our son Joshua. Mark has been on medication due to the filth that he ingested while in the pit latrine but he is doing well. Mark will also have to have his teeth measured to determine how old he is and then will be given a birth date based off of that. We need 4 sponsors at $40 per month for Mark.
|Luke’s head when he arrived at
Mission:180. It is almost completely healed now.
Luke – Luke also came to live at Mission:180 several weeks ago. His mother left him in the care of a neighbour and told them she would return shortly. After a couple of days with no contact from the mother Luke was taken to the local police station and reported as abandoned. The police once again called Mission:180 to see if we able to care for Luke while they investigated where his mother disappeared to. Luke came to Mission:180 with cigarette burns all over his body with a bunch of infected burn marks all over the back of his head. We immediately had him treated by a doctor and I am happy to report that his sores are completely healed. Luke is a shy little guy but he is very happy to be living in a safe home at Mission:180. We need 4 sponsors at $40 per month for Mark.
Maggie and John – Siblings Maggie and John arrived at Mission:180 on February 12th after being abandoned by their mother 3 days earlier. Their mother had left them in the care of a neighbour and promised to be right back for them. The neighbour waited for 3 days before taking them to the police. We received a call from the police on the afternoon of the 12th asking if Mission:180 could care for the siblings while they tried to trace the whereabouts of their mother. Maggie was able to tell us that she is 4 years old and that her brother John was 1 year old. They have fit in nicely at M:180 and are happy to be in our care. Both Maggie and John are super cute and love to snuggle! Both Maggie and John are in need of 4 sponsors each at $40 per month.
