I'm currently in Ghana, a small country located in West Africa, serving and teaching at The Acts 2 Collective Mission Campus. Two young boys from our mission center recently contracted malaria and were admitted to the Peki Hospital. While there, I stayed with the young boys in the hospital to keep them company and assure they were okay. During my stay, I met a young boy named Junior Dzeble. About two weeks ago, Junior was found nearly dead, living in a bush and was admitted to the hospital by Social Welfare. Junior is two years old, however he is unable to walk, talk, crawl, or move most of his body because he is severely malnourished. He has a protuding stomach and multiple head wounds. Junior has lived his entire life in a bush with an 86 year old man that claims to be his father. He was never clothed, fed, nor cared for. While at the hospital, the Doctor explained Juniors medical situation to me and made it clear that if Junior does not get proper care following his discharge from the hospital, he will quickly die. Immediately, I felt called to take Junior into the hands of Acts 2 Collective Foundation.
After meeting with Social Welfare, I learned that they have been dealing with Junior's family situation for many years now. Junior's mother, who is mentally ill, has had 11 children. Junior is the 11th child, however the 10 children before him have all died. We are currently working with Social Welfare to gain custody of Junior, so he can live in our mission center and be cared for by our house mother.
In order to provide adequate care for Junior, we will need medical funding. Because he is in such a vulnerable state, Junior will need a dietitian, consistent medical check ups, daily medications and he will follow a very strict meal plan. I am desperately asking for your help to provide the necessary funds to support Junior's needs and save his life.
God willing, once Junior is discharged from the hospital, he will come into the hands of Acts 2 Collective and we will love, support, and care for him.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about Junior's story and I ask that you keep this little boy in your prayers. I will consistently post updates about Junior's journey and will stay in touch with all those who are concerned.
