I live with  my eight year old brother and my dad in a single room house. I share a bed with both of them.  My mom abandoned the family after being physically abused by my dad.  He is irresponsible and drug addicted.  He does not work and often leaves my brother and I alone for hours with no one to care for us. We were not able to go to school and would wander in the village looking for food. I am thankful to be at Mahiga Children’s Home with my brother, Joseph.  I feel safe and am now in Nursery school.
