Providing support in Togo

“I wanted to play with my friends, but something always retained me. I was afraid my mother would die,” says Mawulom. Mawulom was only 10 years old when his mum Ami was admitted to hospital after feeling seriously ill for two months. Her legs were swelling and growing increasingly painful. Eventually, she collapsed. Mawulom had been living in fear of losing his mum and was suffering from debilitating anxiety. He couldn’t live a normal childhood, as the fear and worry affected both his mental and physical health. Abraham, Mawulom’s social worker at his Compassion project, noticed a change in his behaviour and paid him a visit at home. Upon discovering Ami’s ill-health, he used Compassion Survival Intervention Funds to pay for emergency surgery and medication for her. They also provided food for the family to eat whilst she was in the hospital. Now Ami is home and gradually getting better. Mawulom is feeling much more positive about life. “All my fear was gone the day my mother was discharged from hospital and arrived home,” he says. “Without the help of the [Compassion] centre, my mother would have died.” Mawulom is grateful not only to his social worker and Compassion project but also to his sponsors. “May God bless my sponsors for their love and care for us. I pray that God rewards them abundantly.”
