BOODLES CHARITY PARTNERSHIP.
Boodles is helping children like Joseph.
Joseph lost his parents to Ebola. Now he lives with his auntie Mabel who looks after seven children, four of whom are Ebola orphans.
Street Child supported Mabel to set up a business. With the money she makes from her business she can afford the costs of sending her children to school.
"During Ebola I was isolated and stigmatised because of the quarantine. It was really hard. Today I’m feeling better thanks to Street Child’s social workers. My hope for the future is to finish my education and become a lawyer so that I can help my family out of poverty. Education has taught me to read. It will help me develop my family's lives too. I’m good at maths and English - they’re my best subjects."
Join team Boodles to help more children like Joseph.
