Joseph

„I was living on the streets for about 11 years. It was not easy to get enough money to eat. Even finding a place to sleep was difficult most of the time. Sometimes I had to sleep next to the sewage drain and was bit by mosquitoes. Because of that I became sick quite often. While I was sick, I couldn’t work and therefore not afford any medicine. Sometimes friends bought me some medicine with their money. All of us didn’t go to school while we lived on the streets. We had to work every day. Once we had some money, we spent it on games. And when all our money was gone, we went working again.”

(Joseph, 16 years old, former street child, now living in a CFC home)
