My family lived together until October 2016.  This is when my mom was caught selling drugs and was imprisoned.  Because my father was also involved in work, he fled and disappeared.  The neighbors did not like us because our parents were involved in drugs so no one wanted to help us. They even tried to burn our house down. I have six sibling and I am the sixth born.  Our grandmother loves us but is too old to provide for us so we went to the District Children’s Officer for help.  They took me along with 3 of my siblings to Mahiga Children’s Home. I am safe again.  I am in 1st grade (Class 1).
