Ruth* is from a family of eight children but since her father’s passing, she was sent alone to live with her aunt. Ruth became malnourished and stopped attending school as her aunt was unable to properly care for her. When she returned home, she was brought to the CBO along with five of her siblings where she slowly regained her health and strength. The headmaster of the local school also stepped in to pay for Ruth’s school fees so she could re-start her education.
