The New. Family

The picture below shows Bhe.’s aunt receiving a previous food parcel, and the other is of Bhe. collecting his food parcel at the K2 centre. 

Bhe. Ndw. is an Orphan child.  He lost both parents when he was very young, and after their death he lived with his grandmother until she also passed away.  He was just three years old.  He is now 23 and currently in school doing grade 12.  After the death of his grandmother, he was moved from one family to another, and he still does not have a permanent home.  He is suffering from Alzheimer’s, which causes him to forget even to eat food.  As a result he has sometimes dropped out of school, which is why he is still trying to complete his matric.

He was taken in by his aunt, but she is not working and she also has four children.  They depend on the children’s child support grants.  Bheki needs assistance with a shelter and food.  Since his grandmother died,  he has not had a permanent place to live, moving from one relative to another, which has been bad for him at times.
