This week, we’d like to help a 14 year old girl from Wales, who has just left her family home to escape physical, sexual and emotional abuse from multiple family members. She was also exposed to drugs and hasn’t been to school in three years.
Social workers have arranged for Leonie to move in with her elderly aunt in another part of the country. She will be staying there indefinitely.
Her aunt is wonderful and has welcomed her with open arms, but her home is very small and she doesn’t have any of the things Leonie needs - or the money to buy them.
Her support worker said: “Her auntie is going to help her to rebuild her life, provide her with the emotional support she needs, the education she deserves and the stability she so desperately requires.”
With your help, we’d love to help give Leonie a fresh start with all the things she needs – bedroom furniture, school uniform, clothing, and some space of her own.
