Shepherd's Care Home
DOB: May 5, 2013
Melo and her sister Thabile were brought to Shepherd's Care by social welfare.
Their mother abandoned them when Melo was two years old.
Their father locked them in the house alone all day without food or water.
He sometimes fed Melo, but he often withheld food from Thabile and forced her to eat her own feces and drink her urine.
Both girls were severely malnourished and emotionally distraught from abandonment, neglect, and all kinds of abuse.
Neither had been in school.
Praise God, Melo is thriving now! The simplest things like having her physical needs met and warm affection go a long ways towards showing her how very much she is loved. She's very outgoing and loves to share her thoughts.
She attends our preschool where she's learning to speak English.
