My mom passed away from AIDS. My dad is also sick with this disease. After my mom died, my life became a nightmare. Dad started abusing me in multiple ways. The local community stepped in to have the police arrest him for the way he was treating me. He is now in prison. My little brother and I then lived with my grandmother but she was unable to take care of me. When I was 8 years old in 2010, I came to live at Mahiga Children’s Home. I’m so grateful for the love I receive there. I am healthy. School is very difficult for me but I try my best. Now I am in my last year of primary school which is 8th grade (Class 8).
