My mom is not married.  She has three children. I do not know my father. There have been many men that come to our house at night. My mom spends most of her time drinking illegal beer in the slums. I have spent my life
eating from the hands of kind people who give something to me to eat. People have tried to help our family but my mom spends any money she can earn to fund her habit so no one wants to help us anymore. My older sister has a sponsor and is in secondary school.  I happy that my brother, George, lives here too and that I can actually go to school.  I’m in 1st grade (Class 1).
