Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On a recent sponsor visit trip through World Vision, I went to Albania. There I met Klevis and his family. 

Klevis became severely autistic after being misdiagnosed and given the wrong medication. His family live in a borrowed and tiny stone house in a very rural area in the hills.  The house has a two burner stove sitting on their counter with two metal pots.

In order to keep Klevis safe, his mother has to continuously hold him. When he did get away once, he was bitten by a dog and had to have 11 stitches.

Jobs are scarce in Albania. Klevis' father is jobless and suffering from depression.

Through the work of some fundraisers, building work on a secure house for Klevis' family began. Unfortunately, it barely commenced before the funds ran out.


 The actual cost to finish the house at this day works out to be £8,244 after the exchange rate. We are rounding it off to £9,000 to get whatever else would help Klevis and his family. Most likely, they will need secure fencing and maybe some special toys for autistic children to keep Klevis occupied. There is one other fellow sponsor fundraising for this cause. So we are splitting the goal.

Please donate to get this house built for Klevis' family. Soon it will be impossible for Klevis' mother to go on holding him. To read more about it on my blog, please go to https://homeandspirit.wordpress.com/2018/06/16/albania-meeting-klevis/.
