Hello everyone, I'm known as Aron! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Birthdate: March 15, 2013 

Since: February 24, 2021 

Aron is a cute little boy. We are happy that he is with us. We hardly know anything about his background. The police found him on the streets of Boane, late in the evening. He was all by himself. He has probably been through a lot. The police report speaks about violence however it doesn’t explain what and how. Aron himself told me that he was with his mother in a car and when he got out of the car, his mother left. He has mental disabilities and hardly answers questions. He doesn’t see well and probably needs an operation on his eyes. He will go to preschool this year and we will see if he improves, so that he can go to primary school in the future.

Please pray for the healing of Aron's eyes, for his emotional healing and that he may get to know the Lord as His Savior and biggest Friend


We praise the Lord that Aron is feeling at home here with us and making new friends.
