Voices of Hope: Hear From Those We've Helped

I never knew where I belonged until I found Fikelela. As an orphan, I felt lost and alone, with no one to turn to. But then I arrived at Fikelela, and suddenly, I had a home and a family who welcomed me with open arms. They didn't just provide me with a roof over my head; they gave me love, support, and a sense of belonging that I never thought possible
