Both of my parents are severe alcholhics.. Due to her alcohol addiction, my mother ran away from home and went to Nyeri town were she became a prostiutue to sustain her drinking habit. I was left with my father who mistreated me. He was arrested for his mistreatment and I was brought to Mahiga Children’s Home where I was given a safe and loving place to grow. I am very thankful. I am currently in 11th grade.
