Tumaini Joins Footprints
Tumaini and her older brother Samwell, were found living with their elderly grandparents after the death of their parents. The village in Mwatapa where we found them was in a poverty stricken area with mainly orphaned children living with HIV. Fortunately after the rescue and routine medical checks we were relieved that both children had not been infected.
Tumaini was only two years old when she was rescued with Sammy, clearly traumatized by her early years and desperate for love and attention.
