Atenafu’s story



Atenafu (6) lives on the outskirts of Awassa in a small rented apartment with her mother and four other children (two of them are siblings and the other two are cousins). The boy’s family situation is very difficult. Atanafu has no father, only a mother who has no job. Every morning he goes begging on the street.

Atenafu is also begging and is on his own. The conditions at home are very difficult. The new T-shirt he got for Christmas after just one day of wearing it looked like a dirty rag.

As the boy does not have adequate care, we admitted him to the center, and we will try to help his mother find employment.
