This Child Protection Week, Meet Lerato

This Child Protection Week, we’d like to introduce you to Lerato. Child Protection Week has been commemorated in South Africa since 1997 and aims to mobilise all sectors of society to ensure the care and protection of children. And children like Lerato need care and protection.

Lerato is severely epileptic. Undiagnosed and untreated before she came to Yenzani, Lerato suffered brain damage and now needs special schooling. She is the sweetest girl, and despite her significant mental challenges, she does her very best and enjoys her time at school.

Lerato’s special school is a long way from the Yenzani house and her transport is one of our biggest monthly costs. As we commemorate Child Protection Week from 29 May to 5 June 2016, we’re asking you to help us to get Lerato to school every day and to help us to do our best to care for and protect her, her two brothers who also live at Yenzani, and as many other children as we can.
