Once locked in a cage, Joseph now plans to free others. Joseph was adopted but instead of giving him a warm and safe home, his caregivers abused him from a young age. He was badly caned, made to kneel for hours, threatened to be abandoned and even locked in a cage whenever his caregivers were displeased. In 2011, the Ministry of Social and Family Development referred him to The Salvation Army Gracehaven for care and protection when he was only nine years old.

At Gracehaven, our social workers helped him to overcome his emotional turmoil and worked closely with his caregivers on providing Joseph with proper care. Recently, Joseph was transferred to [email protected] by The Salvation Army which offers an alternative care approach for older teenagers. Free from his traumatic past, Joseph now looks forward to a promising future and plans to pursue a career in social services to use his personal experience to help others.

There are still many other people like Joseph caged by their painful memories. Help set them free by supporting our life-changing work today. Because of your kindness, many can have hope for tomorrow.

To protect the identity of our beneficiary, the name has been changed and a volunteer model was used in the photograph.
