Jane

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 have six siblings and I am in the middle. 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 so we went to the District Child Officer for help. They took us to Mahiga’s Children’s Home. I feel safe again. I am in 9th Grade. (Form 1)
