Victor is the younger half-brother to Loice,  Victor is 8, and like his brother Ken, he has a lot of pain in his eyes.

 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 Victor, before his 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. Victor's older sister, Gladys, had to hide all of the kids, including Victor, 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.  

How hard can it be for Ken to understand all that has happened in his short life.  Just the thought of moving to the orphanage has brought hope; it's a place where the worrying can stop and he can focus on what should be important to every 8 year old - being a kid! It is imperative that the children are rescued and are brought to a new, safe environment. It is imperative that Victor can stop fearing for his and his siblings lives and can find safety and peace.
