My mom died on January 27, 2017 and the next year my dad died on June 2, 2018. They passed away from AIDS. My dad was also paralyzed. Life was so hard. I was left with my grandmother. She is elderly, sick and not in a position to care for me. I was in and out of school because we could not afford for me to attend. Often I stayed home to help with the chores and care for my grandmother. This makes it hard to focus on my education. I am thankful to have the opportunity to live at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home and attend school. I am in 7th grade (Class 7).
