Nebiu was born in an area called Shekiso. He and his mother moved to Addis when he turned one in search of a better life. Nebiu’s father is still in Shekiso and he kept in touch with them until recently. Nebiu’s mother, Helen, found out she has a serious illness after their arrival in Addis. Because her health is deteriorating, she cannot work and support her son. She was referred to us by the Wereda. Although Nebiu does not have the same illness as his mother, he is malnourished and requires our assistance with nutritional support. His mother is sure that she can work to support him once she gets her strength and health back.
