Family Support.

My name is Nancy I thank God to have finished form four successfelly since our mother left us because we were many and life was very frustrating for her with us as her children. She found it very difficult for her because when I didi my class 8 I passed and even continued with secondary school and still passed. She left us when I had finished class 8 no where to get school fees. I tried to shore with many people about our life with my brothers and sisiters that was terrible. I used to work for people to feed them and for my fees. Then a good samaritan came with an idea about an organization that would support if I talk to them. Tnelly we approceched CABDA that saw that I was in need and accepted to support. So I am under CABDA up to where I am supporting my young my young family of six grow and be educated.
