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

A younger picture of me is on the way so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: August 9, 2016

Since: August 2019

"Amina is our ‘granddaughter'. Her mother Beatriz used to live with us but choose a different lifestyle…and now she has 3 children of her own. None of the fathers helps their children, so Amina lives with us so she can attend preschool and be in a safe place. Amina is a sweet girl, she hardly ever cries and is hardly ever is sick. She has lots of girls her age in the center and plays very well with them."

- Corrie Ockhuysen

Please pray that Amina's mother (Beatriz) changes her life course and gets a job so that she can take care of her children.


We praise God that for now Amina is with us being able to go to school and live in a safe environment.
