To save distressed mother and her children. my daughter and grandchildren.

by Anguished grandma in Nairobi, Nairobi County, Kenya

I intend to use the money we raise to relocate this family to a place of safety rid of violence. My vision is for these two girls to grow in a peaceful environment so that they can go to school and pursue education.   I feel I should take the initiative to seek help from people of goodwill to  rescue at risk children. These children are living in an unhealthy environment for young girls. They are watching their mum being violently attacked, assaulted such that on one recent occasion on 09/04/2019 she was held in police custody just because her husband wanted to make an example of her. I feel that if I do not act now, my daughter is going to end up dead  As a grandmother, I feel I have a responsibility to ensure my daughter is living a good life. But it is heart breaking to talk to my grandchildren and they ask me whether I am going to get them or take them somewhere safe. At the moment, I am paying for them to stay in a women shelter but I know I might not be able to do this for long. The mother wants to be able to work and support her children, but she is unable at the state she is in at the moment. She is traumatised so badly sometimes she tells me they have been crying together. Their father has strict views on how they should bring up the two vulnerable girls. My very real fear is that their education will be affected as  there is disagreement about then going to school.

Let's make 'A place of safety for children at risk' happen
