Emmanuel

 

Emmanuel was brought to Neema under special conditions when we were asked by Social Welfare to take this little guy. He was pretty beat up with scabs and bruises on his face. His mother is an alcoholic and lives in a cardboard box. Emmanuel was called a “walker” because he just walked around from place to place asking for food. There are many street kids in the large towns in Africa but not usually as young as Emmanuel. We are not sure his exact age but he has fit right in with the big boys in the Montana House. He knows how to charm people, I guess that is how he got people to give him food. Emily Broadbent and Emmanuel are best buddies.


When you leave this earth you can take nothing you have received, only what you have given.
