Chipa’s Story

    Before joining the PFP program, China and her sister Sylvia had been abandoned by their family. They stayed with a relative who tried to offer support but the family had too many children to feed, and Chipa was not made a priority. The sisters were in immediate threat of being left to survive alone on the streets. Luckily, The Peace for Paul Foundation heard of the trouble these sisters faced and came to help. Chipa lived at Peace Home with her sister Sylvia for a number of years and after a time, the family’s financial situation turned around. The family gained (limited) employment and were happy to welcome the girls back home to rebuild and strengthen family relationships. In 2018, the girls returned home, but remain a full part of the PFP program. They attend boarding school during the school year and spend school holidays with their family.  PFP supports them financially with food, medical and other expenses. Our social worker makes weekly check in visits to ensure Chipa continues to thrive.
