Ann

I am the fourth born in a family with 5 children. Both of my parents are alive, although they have HIV. My mom is my dad’s second wife. He is committed to caring for his three children from his first wife, but not us. My mom is depressed and abandons the family often. Our house is 1 room that serves as the living room, bedroom and chicken coop. My older half-brother indecently assaulted me. My parents knew about it but did nothing to prevent it from happening again. I’m thankful to be living at Mahiga Children’s Home with my two brothers, Samuel and Francis. I am in PP1 Nursery school.
