I Was Transformed By A Good Samaritan's Efforts

By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of I WAS TRANSFORMED BY A GOOD SAMARITAN'S EFFORTS My name is Murefu. I have lived on the streets in Kakamega for the last 10 years. I was abandoned in Kakamega town while I was still a small boy of about 5 years.

I was almost dying of hunger when a good Samaritan picked me. She took me to hospital, hospitalized me and later brought me up for one year.
