Akampurira Collins is six years old and is currently the youngest of our children at The Peace Centre. He suffered from malaria and is no longer able to hear properly.
We don’t know for sure when Collins’ parents died, but what we do know is that his dad had AIDS and committed suicide in 2010. We believe his mother abandoned him after his father’s death and he found himself left in the house on his own.
Collins’ grandmother took him to her home, but she herself has mental health issues. Collins was very scared and reticent when he arrived, unsurprisingly, but he has now started calling the Matron and the Nurse ‘Mama’. His development is slow, we think due to the neglect he has suffered, but he is beginning to settle into The Peace Centre.
