Elizabeth lost both of her parents at age 5. An uncle was assigned as her guardian but was not able to provide for her. Elizabeth found herself living completely on her own. With nowhere to lay her head, she slept in a foul-smelling goat pen. She begged the residents of the village for food but frequently went to bed hungry.

Having compassion, a local village church woman (left) recommended we take her in.Elizabeth quickly requested a new name as there was already an Elizabeth in the family. Stacey Schierloh named her Ruth. With the help of Orphan Shade donors, Ruth’s life is forever changed.  She now has a new name, two parents, a healthy life, and sleeps in a real bed.

Ruth is a typical example of the children we rescue and raise. However, there is much to do to prepare her for life as an adult.


Ruth is a member of avillage family of 2 parents and 8 children. She must learn how to function in afamily. This includes esteeming others, chores,
