Joy was not abandoned, she is from a single family of a father. She lost her mother at her tender age. Her mother died in tragic circumstances as she was trying to rescue the family from a heavy drought. She was found cutting someoneâs raw bananas whereby the owner sounded an alarm and she was caught and fragmatched to the chiefâs office.
She was locked up for court and the following day during the night she died with her baby at her breast. The father would not help the family either especially providing for the two children at their tender age. The request was made to us by the father and the church to cater for the childrenâs needs as we stay with them till the father gets a stable job to sustain the family. Joy and Ann are now in the home happy.
The two girls lost their father in December 2014. They have siblings who see them occasionally.
