Melvin is the last born in a family of six children and attends St Irene’s ECDC. Her parents were unlucky as they did not attend school which has rendered them illiterate. They always rely on casual jobs to feed and support their family with basic needs which isn’t easy. Due to their low income, they are unable to provide all the basic needs for their family.
The family lives in a two roomed grass thatched house, which isn’t well ventilated and also deprives the privacy for the parents and the elderly children. Melvin and other children sleep on old clothes due to lack of beddings in one room as their parents sleep in the other room which during rainy season is used as kitchen.
Melvin also attends Sunday school every Sunday for holistic teachings and development. She is a calm and quiet girl but very shy.Buy Melvin a One-off Gift Right Now
