Sidonie watched her husband, Rodan, stumble into their home. He had wasted his earnings on drink again; inebriation dulled his senses. Anxiety grew in Sidonie. What money could she save to provide for her young son before Rodan wasted it all?
A Family’s Struggle
Sidonie’s son, Ansun, was like the 30 million children UNICEF estimates does not attend school. Without a proper education, his education would be severely limited at best, nonexistent at worst. Sidonie did not have the money to send her son to school, and her options were limited.
Fortunately, Sidonie heard about GFA World’s Bridge of Hope Program, which takes in children like her son and addresses their physical and educational needs. Clutching to the barest glimmer of hope, Sidonie decided to visit the center.
“Every day, my husband goes for work, but when he returns home in the evening, he will spend all the money in buying alcohol for him and his friends,” Sidonie lamented to Bridge of Hope staff. “Because of his bad habits, we are facing difficulties for our daily needs. We do not have peace at home. … I am worried that because of their father’s addiction, my children’s future will be ruined.”
