I’d like to introduce Bereket.
One year ago Bereket would slide around on his bottom or be carried by his mother, he would grunt or cry when he wanted something. He was unable to walk or communicate.
Recently I watched Bereket push his stroller all the way from Grace Centre to Big Day Care to pick up his little sister.
As I watched on, Bereket exclaimed in Amharic “Look Aunty Dee, I am clever!” He is so proud of himself. We are all so proud of him!
Bereket attends Grace Day Care 6 days a week. He has his own special needs carer Eyerus who works very hard with him and has been trained specifically with his special need. He is the second child Eyerus has taught to walk and communicate. Recently Bereket needed to travel to Addis to have his eyes tested. Eyerus volunteered to care for Bereket’s little sister so his mother could travel with him.
Equipping families. Preventing Orphans. Creating futures.
That’s what I’m talking about!
and get involved!
