Shana's father died in an accident, and her mother moved the family into a rock quarry to survive. After a year, her mother died of a lung disease in the rock quarry from the dust leaving Shana alone in the world. Eventually, Shana was rescued and brought to live at The Sylom Children's Home.
Today, Shana is 12 years old, and she wants to become a doctor. She loves spending time with the other girls, and she reads whatever she can get her hands on whether it is books or newspapers. She excels in her science classes and has already read all the textbooks we have available.
When you sponsor Shana, you take care of her needs for food and education. You'll get updates from time to time about how you've made a difference and learn about the significant things happening in her life.
When you do what you can For One, you help end child slavery for good.
Dozens of other children are waiting to be connected with a sponsor. See their stories.
