Dasha: A New Outlook on Life

Dasha: A New Outlook on Life

   Alyssa Anderson
   31 May 2019

Dasha had the pressures of family responsibility at a very young age. When she was only eleven, her mother would leave her and her four sisters at home alone with no food. Eventually, the government intervened and took custody of three of her sisters and moved Dasha and her nine year old sister to her grandmother’s house. Dasha was desperate for family. 

She began attending the Zacatecas CarePoint in Mexico a year ago. When she arrived, she was struggling with suicidal thoughts and depression. After attending for a while, she began to open up and receive healing from her struggles. The teachers made her feel loved and not judged. The feeling of being part of a family began to wash over Dasha.

An outgoing young lady with a bright personality, she began to take part in artistic activities like choir and performance theater. Because of the ongoing support she receives at the CarePoint, Dasha has the school supplies needed to attend school.

Her outlook on life is growing brighter each day as she learns about how much Jesus loves and cares for her. Dasha is now dreaming about her future and how she would like to become a doctor one day.
