My mom died three days after giving birth to me.  She had an infection of cerebral malaria and meningitis. I was born premature. My father was left with his five children. We were very poor as his only source of income was picking tea at a neighbors farm. He could not care for me and I was brought to Mogogosiek Baby Home when I was just two weeks old. He is still unable to provide for me and now that I am in 2nd grade (Class 2), I came to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home with a few of my other friends from the baby home. I am happy to keep going to school and be cared for well.
