Both of my parents have died.  My mom passed away in 2012 and my dad in 2013.  They died from an AIDS related illness.  After my mom died I went to live with  my grandmother because my dad was too sick to care for me. My grandmother is also sick and mentally ill. My two siblings went to live with my aunt but I had to remain with her.  She is not able to work because of her health and she had no way of earning an income. Life has been very hard for me.  I am in 3rd grade (Class 3) and I am so thankful to be at Mahiga Children’s Home now.  I am safe and happy.
