Desmond

I came to live at Maai Mahiu after living in a safe house  since October 2013.  I went there because my mom earned an income by making and selling illegal alcohol. This is a serious offense in Kenya and she was imprisoned several times for it. During those times I was left with my aunt who is an alcoholic. My mom also started selling drugs. Earlier this year the organization that ran the safe house tried to make a plan for me to go back home but my mom moved away. No one knows where she is living now.  They cannot find my relatives either.  I am now in 3rd grade (Class 3).
