RESCUE MERCY THROUGH SPONSORSHIP
Hello, my name is Mercy.
I am a 13 year old girl in grade 8.
My birthday is May 5th.
My favorite subject in school is Science.
In my free time I enjoy Reading.
I am a double orphan.
I live in village of Zambia Compound and attend school at African Vision of Hope in Kafue, Zambia.
Mercy is an 13 year old girl from the village of Zambia Compound which is in Kafue Zambia. At home Mercy’s duties include many household chores such as sweeeping, washing, and fetching water. She also has responsibilities in caring for her younger siblings and “extended” family. Mercy really enjoys learning about Science in school and in the limited free time she has, enjoys Reading.
Daily life for Mercy and her friends is very difficult. The majority of her friends from Zambia Compound, her home, are not able to afford to go to public school and survive on a single small meal per day. This meal is primarily made of nshima – a staple that is made of ground corn flour boiled in water.
