Antonia is just 11-years-old, but she looks after her whole family.
Her mum Niki has a terminal illness, and big-hearted Antonia helps care for her with her dad, Erkin, while also making sure her younger siblings are all looked after.
All week, Heart Breakfast’s Jamie and Amanda have been speaking to the family, and plotting a very BIG surprise for them… a trip to Disneyland Paris!
Through lockdown, charity Enfield Carers have been supporting the family – and hundreds of others in a similar situation – making sure they have enough food and supplies and providing emotional support.
Enfield Carers Centre give support and advice to carers in their local community. The carers themselves provide unpaid support to people who could not manage without help, this could be because of illness, frailty, disability, mental ill-health or substance misuse problems.
They are one of the charities supported by Global’s Make Some Noise.
Window of Hope
This Christmas, through Window of Hope we’re raising money for those hit hardest by coronavirus. Small charities bring hope to thousands of people in our communities who have been affected by coronavirus.
We are sharing the stories of some of these people, including Anisha and her children – another family supported by Enfield Carers Centre.
Real people and real stories are at the heart of Window of Hope. We’re giving you a look into the lives of those we support through the small charities we fund. They’re sharing their stories of hope because there are many more people who need our help.
