It is not just Royce at potential risk, however. His mother, now a widow in a divided community, has lost her breadwinner and family advocate. She must now learn to make do with her own limited education while also encouraging Royce for his future.
This is where Hope House steps in. Hope House addresses these common concerns for the family in a divided and potentially hostile community where Christians face persecution. Though it will take time for the small family to adjust to their new life, the child sponsorship program gives them peace of mind in many of these at-risk areas. The program provides nutritional monthly food packages, routine medical care for Royce and even built-in child care for after school hours when Royce is at the center for secondary school. He told ICC, “I go to school for 2 days a week and l liked this. I understand well and go to my center classes then I get back to my house, I do my homework. I dream of being a barber like my father.”
His mother is also now eligible for the women’s literacy class offered to child sponsorship mothers to help them learn the basics of English, Arabic, and Math to assist their child at home and bolster their own abilities.
Royce is currently available for sponsorship to help bring his family through this challenging time in their lives. Would you prayerfully consider what it may look like to support Royce and his mother?
