Newsletter Des 2019-Feb 2020


December 2019- February 2020
We apologize for being long overdue in sending this newsletter, we have been busy with new reformed support staff behind the Jodie O’Shea House.
A HUGE thanks to all of Jodie O’Shea donors and supporters, we really appreciate your continued love and generosity. We are extremely grateful.
REUNITED AFTER 5+ Years apart
Soleh (that’s what he called himself) been living with Jodie O’Shea House since June 2019, we found him living on the rubbish dump and was very dirty and confused. Searching for his family with no clue, Soleh didn’t even remember his parents' name or his own name. The only thing he could remember is the village name where he used to live in Lombok.
Using the Police network, the current JOSH manager send Soleh’s photo to the Police headquarter and get the support from Lombok local Police to search for Soleh’s family.
Within 24 hours the Police were able to find Soleh’s family and JOSH received a full complete report of  Soleh’s history that been lost contact with the family for 5+ years. The following 24 hours Soleh’s family arrived at Jodie O’Shea House. It was a heart-warming situation seeing the family reunited with their lost loved ones for 5+ years.
Soleh was taken back immediately by the family to Lombok and live with his family. We are very happy for Soleh!
Brave boy!
