Young mother called us late one evening because her mate had thrown her and her daughter out of the house and burnt their clothes and toys on the front lawn and made them watch. She got away and moved in with a relative. LDC met her immediately and provided here and her daughter with clothes and toys. 3 days earlier, a generous donor donated a huge barbie house and over 20 barbie dolls. Little did we know , the daughter lost her Barbie house that horrible evening and her birthday was quickly approaching. The family left with clothing and the little girl left with a barbie house, lots of Barbie dolls, a birthday bag and the knowledge and love of knowing that, despite her horrific ordeal, there is still hope and goodness in the world.
