The school teacher applied for the sisters to Zakat Foundation’s Orphan Sponsorship Program. Approved. Your aid made this possible.
But the story of your loving help does not stop there. No. This was a beginning.
Zakat Foundation local directors made sure to include Zulea and Zaina in every program, including their sports days. They insisted on including their mother, too. No judgment.
Josephine watched Zulea and Zaina laugh from their hearts at play with the schoolgirls. She witnessed their joy, their release. She saw the openhearted acceptance of them by their friends.
The other mothers insisted on bringing Josephine herself in to their play and fun competitions. Guess who won the women’s sprint!
After each event, Josephine retreated, far, alone. Every time, the other mothers retrieved her in the arms of joyous sisterhood.
