Faith is a neighbour to the Pavilion Village children’s home in Karatina and is always close by to play with the kids. Faith and her mother both have a genetic condition which resulted in them being born without hands or feet.
Despite the challenges her life comes with, Faith is the first one to welcome visitors to the Pavilion Village when she is there, with a big smile and hug. She is always off running around playing and never lets her disability stop her. She has fantastic handwriting, enjoys drawing and reading and is position 1 in her class at a mainstream school.
Faith’s mother Felista has set an amazing example for Faith, not allowing her disability to stop her living the life she wants. She works on her farm, carries water, cooks delicious food and much more. Thanks to Faith’s sponsors Joanne and Andy Bilton we have been able to improve the living standards for Felista and Faith in a new home, buy them some sheep and goats as well as paying for Faiths school fees. One day she wants to be a teacher. Felista is a shining example of what a bit of empowerment and support can do, she has taken these animals and turned them into a source of income. We look forward to welcoming Felista to the UK in February 2017 as a guest speaker at our fundraising dinner.
