Saving Mpho

Mpho is 18 months old. The police brought her to Impilo on a freezing cold winters night. She was frightened, exhausted, starving, dirty and cold. She was wearing only a nappy and a t-shirt.

Saving Mpho

 
Dear friend of Impilo
 

Please help us to keep our doors open!

 

Urgent

 
Mpho is 18 months old. The police brought her to Impilo on a freezing cold winters night. She was frightened, exhausted, starving, dirty and cold. She was wearing only a nappy and a t-shirt.

The neighbour heard crying from the shack opposite all day long. She eventually investigated and through a small space in the corrugated iron she saw Mpho sitting alone screaming.  She tried to get into the shack to help Mpho but the door was padlocked and when she could not get in she called the police. Mpho’s mother was nowhere to be found and we later discovered that Mpho had been left on her own for 3 days with the stove on.

This was not the first time that Mpho had been left alone. When Mpho was brought to Impilo our caregivers had to wash her 4 times to get all the dirt off her, and her teeth where rotten and black.
 

These are the children Impilo helps!

 
Please help us to continue to keep children like Mpho safe!
 
We need your financial support now! We are in dire need of funds to keep our doors open.
 
Please pass this on to whomever can assist us.
 
We have been humbled by your generosity in the past.
 
Kind regards
The Impilo team
