While on the page, you can also make a personal donation and read stories about children that will be assisted by BFI.
The story of Ginet, a 17 year old mom in Kenya, really touched me. She was just 14 years old and pregnant when she had to flee Ethiopia. I couldn’t imagine being pregnant and having to go through it completely alone, especially at that age. I have so much help now with my son from my husband and family that it would be incredibly hard to be without support.
Luckily, Ginet was able to get assistance from Heshima Kenya, a local organization there that provides medical, food, clothing, and other help for orphans and refugees. The same type of organizations that BFI is helping with their latest initiative.
Please consider visiting BFI’s Facebook page and making a donation. If that’s not possible, please “like” the page so that $1 can be sent to these charities. Every little bit helps!
