Fleeing persecution from Burundi I arrived in Dzaleka refugee camp Malawi with my five children and nothing else after losing my husband and everything during the armed conflicts. I was hopeless because I had no food for my children, I was crying day and night and was traumatized. I have been realized since I received money from Fountain Of Hope and started my business that is helping me a lot with my children. I am happy now.

My husband passed away and left me with four children and an unroofed house. We have been suffering a lot during the rain season. Now I have bought iron sheets for the roofing of our house from the cash transferred by Fountain Of Hope. (Dorika Moyo)

Fountain Of Hope is a relief for our children who could not find a place in school, this school started like miracle, I could not believe, my daughter is lucky. John Paul father of Lucy (one of our students at Dzaleka camp MALAWI)
  Since our father passed died by accident we lost hope because none could help to pay for our school fees. Three of my siblings are blind and their education is very expensive, our mother can not afford, we thank Fountain Of Hope for helping with tuition fees and school materials.
