Deni (born 8.9.2009)

Deni had been taken to an emergency care centre, following reports by the neighbours and an NGO operating near her village that she was not being properly cared for.  Her mother had left to work in Italy – left, too, two children from her marriage to another man.  After two weeks in the care home Deni came to Harja, her head shaved and without any possessions.

Now she is very happy playing with Mariuca and Maria;  she loves the kindergarten and being told stories which she tells to the little girls, and she laughs a lot.

She talks, too, to her dolls and promises them a holiday at the seaside if they are good.

She is a pretty girl.   Her insecurity shows if she is taken to a place she does not know.
