    Sarah’s Story

    Sarah was born to a single mother. Due to mental health issues, her mother was not able to work and they did not have a place to call home. They were usually on the move and always looking for places to stay, often in unfinished structures, which left them both vulnerable. Sarah’s mother loved her very much but could not keep Sarah safe. After some terrible things took place, local officials had no choice but to remove Sarah out of concern for her well being.

    Sarah was taken in by an organization that cared for her for a number of years. Unfortunately, due to corruption and removal of donor support, the organization was shut down and Sarah found herself facing a very uncertain life again. The local probation officer was made aware of the situation and it was determined that Sarah could not safely be resettled with her mother yet. This was when PFP was asked to assist.

    In 2018, Sarah was welcomed home to the safety and stability of The Peace for Paul family. She now attends a highly ranked private boarding school and is excelling in her studies. When not studying, she enjoys reading novels.

    In 2019, Sarah’s mother received mental health care and housing through the support of her great aunt. Sarah’s great aunt has provided a safe place for Sarah to spend time and reconnect with her beloved mom. Peace for Paul continues to support Sarah with education and medical related expenses, but we’re happy to report that during school holidays she lives with her great aunt and mother at her aunt’s home. 

    The PFP social worker makes weekly home visits to ensure Sarah’s safety and well being.
