    Christine’s Story

    Christine’s mother is a single mom who suffers from severe mental health issues due to a tragic and violent past. Christine’s mother loves her very much and does her best to look after her child. She is unable to care for her on her own, but Christine’s grandmother stepped in to help offer some support so the mother-daughter pair can remain together.

    Unfortunately, the family lives in deep poverty and is not able to afford the most basic necessities. When PFP stepped in to help, Christine was sick with pneumonia, anemia, skin and breast infections and severe malnourishment. With the financial help from PFP and through the loving support of her mother and grandmother, Christine has been able to make a full recovery and is now getting the nourishment that her body needs.

    As her mother is not able to care for her entirely on her own, we have hired a live-in nanny to provide support so the family may stay together. As Christine grows, we will continue to keep a watchful eye and will provide financial support so she may attend school as well.
