Ken is the younger half-brother to Loice.  Ken is only 9 years old, and he doesn't smile easily. There is a lot of pain and worry in his eyes; far more than any 9 year old should have.  Loice's mother passed away when she was very young and her father remarried. Her father and his new wife had six more kids, including Ken, before Ken's mom also passed away. Their father has been selling fruit to try and provide for his children, but the burden of feeding and caring for all of them on his own had led him to a point of despair. One night, he spiraled into such a dark place, he tried to poison himself along with the six kids. Ken's older sister, Gladys, had to hide all of the kids, including Ken, from their father in the streets of the slum for the night. The next morning Gladys went and found Loice in the church and told her about the dangers they had faced. Loice was incredibly worried about her younger siblings and alerted Mama Hellen and Pastor Richard immediately. In attempts to alleviate the father's burdens, Mama Hellen and Pastor Richard let all of the six children come to Seeds Primary School for free. For a little while that seemed to help and their father had gotten to a better place, but things have started to spiral downwards again.  

When we talked with Ken about finding him and his siblings sponsors and moving them into the orphanage, hope glimmered over the pain and worry. It is imperative that the children are rescued and are brought to a new, safe environment. Can you be the one to give Ken a chance to hope?
