7 Orphans - RWANDA

These 7 children were orphaned in the fall of 2015 when parents died unexpectedly 8 days apart. Our team was notified when because the children were found wandering from house to house with no permanent place to stay. They were described as “malnourished, tired, and miserable”. Since we found them, the children have been enrolled in school for the first time and have recovered from the effect of malnourishment. We have identified extended family that is willing to take care of them but is in need of much support. We need to fulfill their sponsorships to help ensure their ongoing care.

FIDELE, 13 year old boy

PRINCE, 6 year old boy

When Prince came to us, he was in the worst condition physically of all the children. He was at high risk of getting kwashiorkor. Kwashiorkor is a form of severe protein–energy malnutrition characterized by edema, irritability, anorexia, ulcerating dermatoses, and an enlarged liver with fatty infiltrates. Sufficient calorie intake, but with insufficient protein consumption (wikipedia). He is now a very healthy and active little boy. He is always right in the middle of all the action.

Sibling Group - Rwanda

Vestine is the mother of this 8 child sibling group living in extreme poverty.  The father works away from home as a  security guard making only $0.36 per day.  They live just within walking distance of Keza Empowerment Center.  This family tugged at our hearts as the small children came to greet us every morning when we arrived.  As we got to know the children and heard their stories, our hearts knitted to theirs.  The children were covered in ringworm, wearing tattered clothes, and obviously hungry.  On Sunday morning, we arrived and asked to see their mother.  They told us that she was at church.  When we asked why they were not with her, they said that the people in the church chase them away because they are too dirty and the people are afraid of them spreading disease.  Our hearts melted; we had to intervene.  Will you partner with us and help us break the cycle of poverty with this family?  Vestine, the mother, will enter our sewing program to begin to earn an income on her own.  With this family, we will start on basic needs and education.  

FABIOLA, 11 year old girl

Foster Family - Rwanda

This sweet family has become one of our foster families.  They agreed to take in foster children through NCC (equivalent to CPS) without the promise of any financial help.  We love this about the foster families in Rwanda; however, we know they need help.  Chantal and her husband run a small shop and are very poor.  They took in two foster kids, Joshua and Liliane, whose parents are both in jail.  Joshua and Liliane had to stay in jail with their parents until Chantal and her husband stepped up and agreed to take the children into their home.  Joshua and Liliane have been with Chantal since April 2018.  Chantal has barely enough to feed the children so school is not an option.  Chantal also takes care of her nephew Yasipi.  NCC contacted us and asked if we could partner with this family.  After meeting them, we were happy to do so!  Will you partner with one of these children and be their hope for a better future?

JOSHUA, 7 year old boy

Despite having gone through the trauma of living with his parents in jail, Joshua has a very friendly and kind presence. He was a joy to be around and looks after his little sister Liliane.

LILIANE, 2 year old girl

Liliane is quite shy. Part of it is probably age and the other part trauma. Thankfully she has a big brother that looks after her and a foster family willing to take her in.

Yasipi, 5 year old boy

As you can tell by the photo, Yasipi has some trauma that he struggles with as well. This was the photo where he looked the least troubled. He even looks older then 5 years old. Our prayer is that a sponsor comes along for Yasipi that not only helps him financially but also spiritually through committing to pray for him daily. We have seen so much transformation through our programs and cannot wait to see a smile on Yasipi's face. Will you sow into his life?

KEVINE, 2 year old girl

Kevine is the biological child of Chantal, the foster mom. As Chantal is giving unto others, we want to give unto her and make sure that her children are taken care of as well. We are looking for a sponsor for Kevine that will help get her enrolled in school to help her have the best life possible. We pray that Chantal's kindness will be repaid through her future generations.

Street Children - Rwanda

PATRICK, 10 year old boy

Our team found Patrick when he was 10 years old and living on the streets of Kigali. His mother and father were both street children themselves. Patrick does not know where his parents are and had been living on the streets, begging for food, and sleeping on a tarp for most of his life. Patrick would hide his clothing in a crack in the wall to keep them safe. Our team’s heart broke for this little boy who has no one to love him or look after him. Now after having been with us for nearly a year Patrick is thriving! He eats every meal, has clean clothing to wear, and is enrolled in school. When our team visited in February of 2017, they were amazed at even his progress in English. Patrick is very smart and has an engineering mind! Do you have a heart for Patrick?

STEVE - RWANDA, estimated to be 5-6 years old

On August 1, 2016, we were called by government officials to intervene on behalf of Steve. Steve is estimated to be 3-4 years old, but due to malnourishment, he is the size of an average 2 year old. Steve lived with his alcoholic father who continuously beat him and threw him into walls. Eventually, his father threw him into the streets. A very poor family took him in but was unable to feed him. Extremely concerned about his welfare the NCC (Rwanda's CPS) called us to intervene. We need supporters to connect with Steve. He had no one that cared about him until he came into Agape Home. Will you step up and STAND in love with Steve? He needs you.

BABY BROWN - RWANDA, 2 years old

Baby Brown was abandoned at birth by his mother. When our team in Rwanda placed Steve with his foster parents, they discovered little Brown and began to learn his story. In addition to taking care of her own three children, this wonderful mother named Alphonsine took in Baby Brown with no support and just recently Steve with the support of IWSI. Our team has been so impressed with the care that the children have received and burdened by Alphonsine struggles to take care of the children two of which are not biologically her own. Would you be willing to partner with Alphonsine and Baby Brown and help sponsor food, medicine, and other basic needs?
