Ankunda Jotham (ID# 544)

$47.00 / month

Jotham and his mother Annet were chased away from the husband’s home after they knew that she is HIV positive. She was very helpless and couldn’t be allowed in her biological home with the children yet the children couldn’t either be allowed in her husband’s home. The allegation was that she got HIV/AIDS out of prostitution and so doesn’t fit in their family. They even helped their son (Jotham’s father) to re marry. She says she almost damped the children in a certain home but later revised her thoughts and started walking from house to house for shelter. Luckily enough, a well wisher (a school head teacher) gave her shelter in one of the classrooms. 

At the time of registration, the school had given her a small room where she stays to date.
