UPDATE: Isabelah is now 19 years old and doing well. Coming to Seed's Children's home has changed her life and literally kept her from going blind. Since being with us she has received continual medication for her eye condition and they continue to improve. She has done well in school and recently passed her National Exam upon completing the 12th grade just before the pandemic closed the country down. Her next opportunity is coming, she will be going to college, which is so exciting for all of us! We love interacting with Isabelah when we are in Kenya - she's sweet, funny, a little shy and very smart! We're currently looking for a new sponsor to come along side her and help her finish her time at Seed's and in the MAF program strong. Our hearts are to see her living independently on her own and NOT back in the slum after college. Finding a sponsor that will help us make that possible is so important. Thank you for reading her story and considering sponsoring her. Also - she loves to get letters and writes good ones back!

Isabelah is 12 years old and is in the seventh grade. She wants to be a doctor when she grows up so that she can help others who need help. She has two brothers and one sister. Her two brothers are three and seven years old but do not attend school because her parents do not have the money to send them. Isabelah and her older sister (who is in high school) are the only ones that are fortunate enough to be in school. Isabelah's mom and dad are both at home, but her home life is horrible. She cries trying to tell us about her life living in the Kipsongo Slums. Her mom tries to get day jobs in order to feed them but her dad drinks heavily and abuses her mom. When Isabelah and her siblings try to stop their father, they usually end up getting beaten too. Her father does nothing for the family and provides no food whatsoever. Isabelah comes to the Seeds Feeding Center to eat lunch because the school she attends does not feed her. She desperately wants to attend Seeds Academy and live in the orphanage but wants her little brothers to be able to do the same. Isabelah suffers from a very contagious eye disease and has not been able to receive any medical treatment for it. Eventually, it could lead to blindnessif it goes untreated. 

Built on love and hope.
