Our Success Stories

Florence

The name of the little girl in the images you see above is, Florence. Florence suffered ridicule by her peers due to her enlarged nose caused by a hemangioma that continued to grow from birth. This had potential problems aside from being teased. This could have caused bacterial infections and the loss of nasal function with the risk of affecting other areas of her face. She is a smiling happy girl free from ridicule and grateful for the generosity of others that made it possible to surgically remove the tumor and give her the confidence she deserves to continue her childhood. Thank You!!

The Soweto (sew-wet-o) Slum

The Soweto slum is an area in Nairobi, Kenya near the International Airport. It’s not nearly as big as the world-famous, 2nd largest slum in the world, called Kibera (Key-bear-a), which is also located in Nairobi. This slum is one of the many forgotten slums. It is about 3 kilometers in length and 1 kilometer in width. This small area has over an estimated 200,000 people living in it. This place is made up mostly of single women, widows, and children. Prostitution and alcoholism are very high here as well.
