Blessings and her brother, Joshua, are the newest residents of our Arise Home. They began living at the Arise Homes in September of 2022.
Blessings has albinism, which can be very dangerous in parts of Africa. Witch doctors have spread rumors about the sacrificial value of albinos and because of this people will go to great lengths to hurt or obtain them. With her safety being at risk, we are grateful she is in our care.
Joshua and Blessings came into our home when our Arise staff received a call from social welfare asking us to bring them into full-time care. The siblings were left by their mother who had a complicated relationship with alcohol. Social welfare knew our homes could provide a safe, nurturing, and permanent environment for them. We are so thankful the Lord gave us them both!
