A life transformed
As a newborn, David was found abandoned in a public toilet in Yamoussoukro, Côte d'Ivoire.
He was taken to hospital for emergency treatment, where the doctor contacted SOS Children’s Villages.
“I had no idea what he’d been through,” his dedicated carer Germain said. “He kept his eyes closed all the time and never complained of anything except for when he was hungry.”
But thanks to the support of people like you, David’s recovered well. He’s now a happy, healthy two-year-old, who feels safe, loved and supported.
