It was six years ago that a young, single mother from Eldoret, Kenya, died. She left behind her three children- Anna (9 yrs), Getty (6 yrs) and James (4 yrs). They knew no family other than their mom. They were all alone.
Soon the children were brought to Open Arms Village. They were so amazed to have a home, parents and enough food to eat every day! James could not believe he got his own mango and didn’t have to share it with anyone!
Though the children were thriving in their new family at the Village, the social workers at Open Arms never stopped looking for any blood relatives of the children.
Recently, all of the searching paid off! Far away from the Village, the maternal grandmother and great grandmother were found! They were so excited
to hear that the children were safe and healthy!
Now, the social workers are continuing to work with the family to assure that these relationship will be healthy for the children.
What a joy to know that these precious children are surrounded by family at Open Arms Village and will, hopefully soon, be reunited with family that is overjoyed to know and love them.
I know I say this often, but this truly is possible only by your generosity. Children are saved and reunited
with loved ones because you care enough to give and to pray. I am eternally grateful to you!
God bless you,
Kaytie Fiedler Executive Director, Open Arms International US
