This crying child came into our center from a very poor river area called ANAM in Anambra State of Nigeria. It is a place where you can go by canoe alone. People in that area are very poor farmers. Her father died immediately after her birth and the mother could not look after the three children. She is jobless and very poor. Chiamaka was almost dying of hunger so we took her into our children's home at Akwaihedi. She is 3 years old and very intelligent in nursery school. Why was she crying? because her rotten mattress was socked with urine and she felt cold while lying on it.
