Geoffrey’s Story

    Geoffrey’s father died when he was 2 years old and then Geoffrey lived with his mentally unwell mother and his cousins.  The Local Chairperson of the village they lived in reported that Geoffrey’s mother often tortured him and the other children and often chased them away from the hut they lived in. Home was never a safe place to be for Geoffrey and he was constantly living in fear. Finally, after many years of abuse, a neighbor took pity on Geoffrey because he was too young to defend himself or to run away when he was being abused so severely. She rescued him and provided what she could for close to a year, but now she has too many burdens taking care of her own family. She could no longer care for him and was planning on sending him back to his abusive mother. This kind woman has pleaded with The Peace for Paul Foundation to take Geoffrey in so he would have a chance at a better life. 

    In 2017, Geoffrey was rescued by The Peace for Paul Foundation. Thanks to his sponsor, he will have a safe and loving home and will have every one of his basic needs met, every single day. He will have the opportunity to attend school as well, and will look toward his future with hope. PFP will work hard to ensure that Geoffrey can maintain a safe and healthy relationship with his mother as well.
