After the death of her husband, Linet Adoyo was left in a tiny house in which she was staying with her kids, the situation continued to be dire as the house was leaking. In her vulnerable condition and with the health of her children at risk, Linet was referred by a village elder to Life for Children Welfare (LCW) for support. That’s when Gloria Akinyi her first born daughter was recruited in our program. Gloria’s life took a turn and her worries in Education ceased as Life for Children took that responsibility.
Gloria has sickle cell anemia and this condition needs a lot of medical attention especially when it is actively attacking her body. Considering Gloria in the LCW program was a big blessing as she would get the necessary medical support, spiritual nourishment, food supplement and clothing as well as the blessing of a new house. Mother Linet felt like her prayer request was answered.
Linet Adoyo a 31 year old young mother had great joy and happiness that drove her energy to tirelessly participate up to the end from mobilization of the community members to full cooperation with LCW staff until the house was completed.
Linet’s testimony was emotional, touching and sincere as you could see happiness on her face, she lacked words to express her joy as tears kept rolling down her cheeks. She exclaimed ”Agwanda kod LCM uumo dunga, Nyasaye mondo omedu” translation “Director and the entire LCM fraternity you have covered my shame may God Bless you abundantly”. She also encouraged neighbors who had come to help her not to give up in whatever situation they are in because God will meet them at their time of need. Her words were so encouraging. Certainly nobody wanted her to sleep outside or in her initial tiny leaking house. With the help of the Life for Children Welfare staff and community members, Linet was blessed with a big new tin-roofed house. We blessed the house and blessed the family. We could not do this if not for the support we get from our sponsors and donors. May God bless you abundantly!
