$50,000 for socially displaced boys

A Maraval home for boys that houses 14 socially displaced young men received $50,000 in funding from the Foundation today. Rainbow Rescue’s Operations Manager Kirwin Samuel recounted that some of the boys, ages 10-18, come from situations of severe abuse, abandonment and neglect. “We provide for all of their needs – from housing to meals and schooling,” said Samuel, “and we see them transform into positive young adults.”
