Samuel is the younger half-brother to Loice, who has been living in the orphanage for five years. At 6 he is the youngest of her siblings Loice's mother passed away when Loice was very young and her father remarried. Her father and his new wife had six more kids, including Samuel, before she 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. Samuel's older sister, Gladys, had to hide all of the kids, including Samuel, 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. Samuel being only 6 doesn't fully understand the extent of the danger him and his siblings are in, but he sees their worry and fear and he feels it too. He clings to Gladys, only smiling and relaxing with her reassurance. His young life has been hard but we hope that that can change today! Can you help by sponsoring him today? You'll allow us to bring him to Seed's orphanage, giving him a safe place to live, food to eat and a chance to go to school every day.
