Help put a smile on twins’ faces

Curly blonde hair and rosy cheeks, twins *Michael and *Matthew need assistance in restoring smiles back to their faces after they were recently removed from their home.

The boys were removed from the care of their parents because their basic needs were apparently not being provided for.

Badisa Trio, local child protection non-profit organisation, says the boys’ circumstances were so difficult, they often went to bed not having eaten anything. It is for this reason the organisation says that play therapy for both of them is imperative.

“The children must deal with their previous trauma to develop emotionally.”

The organisation says a family member was willing to take the boys into their care and the boys did not need to be placed with strangers. “Lately, there has been a concern regarding Michael and Matthew’s behaviour and this has resulted in the adults in their lives becoming very concerned about their emotional well-being. They are experiencing nightmares, are very mistrustful and suffer from separation anxiety.”

Whilst the placement with family is aimed at providing the boys with stability, security and lots of love, the organisation says the boys are uncertain about their futures.

“Unfortunately the biological parents make empty promises to the children, which causes them to become confused as these promises do not materialise.

“Moreover, the parents make no actual effort to change their circumstances.”

Bonding with significant and positive adults is vital for children at this stage of development because this is when they start trusting the people in their lives.

The total cost that is outstanding for therapy, where each child will receive six sessions, is R2 400.
