History:
Bujimbu came to Bethany with his younger brother Ntare. He had been living at Shalom Care Home in Mwanza following the death of his mother. His father is 47 years old, works as a watchman and lives in Mwanza. He was unable to look after his sons when his health deteriorated due to being infected with the HIV virus.
The social welfare contacted Bethany asking if both boys could be admitted into the home. Bujimbuís father wrote a letter to social welfare stating that he accepted that his children should be cared for by the Bethany Family.
To date Bujimbu seems very content to be at Bethany and gets on well with the other children. He works hard and joins in with all the activities.
