Freedom’s life has been one of heartache and tragedy but unfortunately an extremely common story in his community.
Freedom, whose real name is Nkululeku Shabalala, parents split early in his life and as is common within his culture, the children are left to fend for themselves.
Freedom gives selflessly every day to protect the animals of Shongweni Nature Reserve as a ranger on our anti-poaching team but we noticed that he wore the same clothes every shift, broken shoes and the same jacket. To this day we have noticed that he only has one warm top that he always wears.
The tide for him has to change and that’s why we’ve chosen Freedom as one of our families for Adoption. We can raise money to help him build his home, buy new clothes and keep him fed; feeling less alone thanks to those who send their love to him from across the oceans!
