This is Francis. He is 7 years old and he lives with his Grandmother in Soweto slum, Uganda. His parents abandoned him when his was four after a failed attempt at selling him for child sacrifice.
When he started coming to the Child Friendly Space run by Children on the Edge, Francis was very weak and was way too small for his age. He couldn’t talk or play and he got into many fights.
The teachers and social workers on the project have spent time with him over the months and he now plays happily with the other children, he is safe, he has gained weight and participates well in class.
It costs just £42 to feed a child a lunch and breakfast daily for a year.
