Rescued from selective mortal neglect
Playing with her toys.
Rizvana’s father believed that, because she is a girl, she was a curse from God and a burden on their family. After her mother gave birth to her, her father began to severely neglect her—meaning that Rizvana often lacked basic care, attention, and sufficient amounts of food for her development.
Our social workers learned about Rizvana and were able to intervene on her behalf. Your sponsorship ensures Rizvana is receiving proper food and nutrition for her overall development as well as a safe environment to grow. Even more, she will grow to learn she is loved and valued as a girl.
