Shepherd's Care
Sipete, eSwatini

DOB: October 29, 2013

Elementary Student

Ayanda showed up with a social worker quite unexpectedly in February of 2017. Only three years old at the time, she had been repeatedly raped by her father, and she was quite distrustful of everyone. (We don't know where her mother is or if she's living.)

But oh, what the Lord can do to bring healing! This sweet girl has responded beautifully to her new environment, where her daily needs are met and she is protected and loved.

She excelled in our preschool (Little Lambs), and she's continued to do great in primary school, even though at home she sometimes spaces out. Fourth grade finds her competing with her two "sisters" at Shepherd's Care for the #1 position--one of them always has it!  She loves to do puzzles and play Uno.  

Ayanda is still the "baby" of the family, even as new girls have been added at Shepherd's Care.  She doesn't really remember her mother, and there will be days ahead when she'll need to learn to grieve that loss.  

Her father passed away while awaiting trial.
