Joweria’s Journey As A Foster Mother

Joweria’ journey as a foster mother is not just a story of caregiving; it’s a testament to the transformative power of love, resilience, and community support.

Joweria’s story begins with a profound sense of compassion for children in need. Despite not being the wealthiest person, her love and devotion to caring for vulnerable children shine through. Over the years, she has fostered a total of five children, two of whom were nursed back to health from severe malnutrition and successfully reintegrated with their biological families.

Currently, Joweria opens her heart and home to three children, including two with disabilities – Gift, Abby and Jack. Their laughter and playful chatter echo through her compound, a testament to the warmth and nurturing environment she provides.

Joweria’s journey into foster care was sparked by her experience of caring for her sister’s children, who struggled with mental health challenges. Through the guidance of the local council committee, she joined a community group of women to enhance her parenting skills, extending her caregiving expertise to children up to the age of 10.

“I am happy that I have been able to take care of children. Am not the richest person but God has helped to take up the role and I love all my children.” Joweria

Her commitment to fostering deepened when the Local Council Chairman sought community members willing to care for vulnerable children. Joweria stepped forward, registering herself and undergoing training on effective parenting techniques, further equipping her to provide a nurturing environment for the children under her wing.

However, Joweria’s journey is not one walked alone. The unwavering support of our Social Workers and Community Nurse ensures the well-being of her family remains a priority. Their continued monitoring and assistance reflect the collective effort invested in ensuring every child in Joweria’s care thrives.
