At age 3, Jeffrey was accepted into our community care program. His mother is deaf, mute and mentally disabled. She is unable to provide the care he needs. Jeffrey’s grandmother approached the children’s home for placement of 4 of the 7 children she was caring for. At that time, Jeffrey was malnourished and lacked clothing. As part of our community care program, Jeffrey was able to stay living with his grandmother and now receives food, clothing, tutoring, and schooling.

Jeffrey continues to grow and is now a healthy weight with all his essential needs being met.  He is an active boy and enjoys playing sports, especially soccer. He enjoys the company of his cousins and usually has a big smile on his face.
