Robin’s Story

    Robin’s father passed away when she was very young, shortly after her sister Priscilla was born. Her mother struggled to provide for Robin and after a few years, she found another man to take her in. Unfortunately this man refused to allow her to bring Robin and Priscilla with her and so she abandoned them and left her daughters with her own grandmother (Robin’s great grandmother). Robin’s mother has not made contact in many years and so Robin has lost hope of ever going back to be with her. When The Peace for Paul Foundation found Robin, she was living with her great grandmother and a large number of her cousins, all dropped by the great grandmothers own children or grandchildren. The great grandmother has tried to provide for them all, but due to her advanced age is not able to work. The family often goes without food and none of the children attend school (Robin herself dropped out after Primary 4). Her great grandmothers greatest fear is that when she dies, Robin may be forced to the streets or may become a young mother herself due to her own desperation.

    Her great grandmother pleaded with The Peace for Paul Foundation to rescue Robin and her sister Priscilla so they would have a chance at a better life. In 2017, both girls were welcomed into the PFP family and they can now look toward their future with hope. PFP will work to ensure they maintain a safe and healthy relationship with their great grandmother as well. However in order to continue to support Robin we need to find her a sponsor.
