The Mercy Home is one of two homes where over 20 children are taken care of. These children have hope in something great that gives them reason to be happy. They believe in Father God and have big dreams for their future which most of them believe is a bright one.
“My dream is to also help all the children in the streets and all those who are suffering.” said Tedy.
This is Tedy Nyiramana. With her fair complexion, the slim tall thirteen year old, looks pretty in her red blouse and jean skirts.
For Tedy Nyiramana, a normal day usually starts with a prayer thanking God for a brand new day.
Tedy does not take any day for granted. According to Teddy each day, is a step forward to a brighter future all credit going to her creator Father God.
Teddy used to live in a very small mud house where she used to look after her sick mother and baby brother.
“One day two years ago, Mama Mary and Mama Prisca came and took us and started looking after us. That is how we came to Mercy Home.” said Teddy.
Teddy is a candidate at Lumiere De Demain primary school.
“When I grow up my dream is to help all the children in the streets and all those who are suffering.” Teddy emphasized.
Other than this, Teddy enjoys playing soccer, running and most of all praying because God answers her prayers, she said.
Her advice to other children out there is that they should always be humble and listen to their parents. She added that ‘Obedience is much better than Sacrifice.’
Teddy wants to send greetings to her mom, aunt, Aline her friend at school and to Mary.
