An Emotional Nicolette Moses Said: “Christmas came early for us. It came on Good Friday”
Laughter filled the dilapidated home of the Baash family at Height of Guanapo, Arima, on Good Friday as non-profit organisation Foundations 141 delivered a van load of food stuff, clothes, bottled water, pillows, towels, bedsheets and books to the destitute family.
An emotional Nicolette Moses, mother of five-year-old Khadijah Baash said: “Christmas came early for us. It came on Good Friday, a day when Christians commemorate the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.
“Jesus died on this day, but a new beginning has begun in our lives. God has opened up new doors for us. When God can’t come he would send his angels. And that is what he did here today.”
Last Monday, the family’s plight was highlighted in the T&T Guardian. This attracted an outpouring of support on social media.
Although facing an upward struggle, little Khadijah managed to top her pre-school class in Mathematics and reading last term.
She uses a kerosene lamp to do homework in the family’s roofless home which does not have pipe-borne water or other basic furnishings.
