Her story

Since she was born, Victoire was fed with artificial milk and porridge. Her mom was ill and was receiving a treatment that was not compatible with breastfeeding. She unfortunately passed away in April 2021. Since then, Victoire and her 8-year-old brother have been cared for by their grandmother. She had very little means to feed them. All of her savings had been spent on her daughter’s medical treatments and the purchase of artificial milk. We supported them through the donation of monthly food supplies, and the funding of a small business so that the grandmother could become financially independent. 

    Would you like to support the children?

    Project and main actions

    • Food supply during the first month.
    • Support in restarting the grandmother’s business (selling porridge and beignets).

    We saw Victoire, who is doing great! We were happy to learn that the business we helped finance for her grandmother is doing very well.

    May 13th, 2021

    We have financed the business of Victoire’s grandmother, with the purchase of a 50 kg bag of sugar and corn. This will enable her to start her business of selling porridge and botocoins (beignets) every morning. We will visit them soon to see how they are doing.
