Brian Chumba’s mom was born to a single mother in a family of 6. Her mom passed away in 1999 after a long illness. But, prior to her death, she had sought assistance from MCF to extend care and protection to her poor children. Chumba’s mom and her older sister were rescued by MCF in 1996, giving them a chance to pursue education and lead a life without the suffering and uncertainty poverty brings. Chumba’s mom struggled with her education and in 1999, when she was in grade 8, she ran away from MCF. MCF was unsuccessful in their efforts to locate her. She returned home to MCF in 2003 and shared the challenges she had faced. Shortly after leaving MCF, she became pregnant and gave birth to a little boy she called Chumba. She often went without food and was forced to take on menial jobs to survive. She returned to offer her young son a better life. Joan and Chumba were welcomed back to the MCF family.
Chumba was rescued from the harsh elements of life he had no control over. The empathetic spirit at MCF has given him the comfort of a home and care of the family. He is in grade four and is a very intelligent, social and happy young boy.
