My mother abandoned us, leaving us with our elderly grandmother. I have three siblings. Our grandmother could not physically and financially support us. A neighbor would bring us food but it was not enough to sustain us. Our living arrangements were deplorable. The roof was caving in. The home was not safe and left us in a vulnerable state. No one in the family was willing to take care us. Life finally had hope when I came to live at Mahiga Children’s Home. I feel safe and loved. I am in 3rd grade.
