SEARCHING FOR A SPONSOR

Birthday: 06th of August 2013

Elvis is a very special case for us. His mother, Mercy, came to our organization asking for help for her blind and also deaf son, Elvis. A few days later, we made a home visit, met him, and fall in love after seconds. He was curious about what was happening around him and moved around, searching for objects he can feel. He started to touch us gently, his way to see without eyes. He felt comfortable around us and we started to take his story.

He lives together with his mother and two siblings (one younger brother and one older sister) in Kahawa West Nairobi, Kenya. Elvis and his younger brother are not in school because of the school fees. Before Covid-19 his mother was able to sell samosas on the street, afford the fees and sometimes Elvis was able to visit a special school for disabled children. In school, he is very active, likes to play football with the other kids, and is very good at athletics. His mother even showed us some certificates from competitions Elvis did and each year he won the first prize. She is very proud of him!

Elvis’s father left the family 3 years ago. Before he left there were always big arguments at home because he was blaming Mercy for giving birth to a disabled child. He was drunk a lot and beaten up Mercy. This was 2018 and they have never heard from him again. Because Elvis needs to go to a special school his sponsorship is more expensive than others. We hope that we can find a great sponsor for him and send him back to school as soon as possible.

To send Elvis to school and provide him with school supplies and uniform we request 40,00 € per month (480,00 € per year).
