Mengistu is living with his parents and siblings with a family size of 4. He is the 1st born child. His father is a daily laborer and his mother a housewife. Though his parents have been struggling to address the basic needs of the child due to their poor economic back ground. Therefore, we believe that being in our sponsorship program is a great opportunity for them so that they may move forward to self-sufficiency.
Mengistu was healthy without any medical concerns.
