Eugene is 8 years-old and is currently in 1st grade at Mercy School. He came to live at Mercy Children’s Home in June 2017 and his cousin Emmanuel came a week later. Eugene was one of the many street boys we had been ministering to and seemed to be one of the hardest cases. He was abandoned by his mother and father and has lived on the streets most of his life. He does not remember ever not living on the streets (until now!).  He was always high on glue (many of the street boys sniff glue to alleviate hunger pains and the cold at night) and was very loud and defiant. He also speaks almost no English. Over time, he seemed to soften and began to seem really interested in going to school. After much prayer and discussion, we decided to take a chance on bringing Eugene home to MCH. Since then, Eugene has really begun to blossom! He is learning responsibility and how to do chores. He is learning to follow rules and is doing well in school. In fact, getting an education is one of Eugene’s favorite parts of living at MCH. His favorite color is white and his favorite food is chips kuku (french fries and chicken) along with soda. Please consider sponsoring Eugene or one of the other kiddos of Mercy Children’s Home. Together we can change their story!
