Lizzy (Elizabeth)

Born: +-2008

Sponsor: Lodewijk de Kruijf and Bianca Egberts (Holland)

In October 2015 three young girls from Kumasi Children’s Home (KCH) came to PCC. Lizzy was one of them, the eldest, by then about 8 years old so born round about 2007. It was in August 2015  that she was found wandering the streets of Kumasi and therefore brought to KCH and that’s about all we know about her life before coming to PCC.

Lizzy has a mild intellectual disability and the trauma of her early life experiences but amazingly she is a very positive and happy girl.  She always likes to join in for activities. Lizzy enjoys little games, music and dancing, good food as well and of course swimming in the pool. She listens very well to her caregiver. She adapted to the new surroundings and the different way of life at PCC and settled well in our community,


The 2 other girls, who came with her from KCH to PCC, are Esther and Deborah and Lizzy remains a bit of a big sister to them. Lizzy really enjoys visitors to PCC and likes to greet you and even jump on your lap for a hug.
