My mom’s husband died suddenly from a heart attack in 1996. After this she earned a living by engaging with men. I never knew who my father was. My mom has became sick and is not able to make a living or provide care for me. I have one older sister and four older brothers. Most of them are adults but also struggling to make ends meet. None of them are able to care for me. I feel safe at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. I enjoy attending school and playing. I am happy to be able to attend school now too.
