My family was all living together until October 2016 when my mother was caught dealing drugs and was put in prison. At this point my father fled and disappeared because he was also involved in drug trafficking.  I am the second oldest child and have six siblings. We had no one to take care of us. Our neighbors did not like us because of what  my parents did and even tried to burn down our house. My grandmother is the only relative who likes us but she is not able to care for us. The District Child Officer took us to Mahiga’s Children’s Home. I am in my first year at trade school studying hairdressing and beauty therapy.
