Family History:
Evarist’s parents divorced when he was seven years old. Then his mother took him with his brother Emmanuel and his sister Edina to her home place Kisesa. In 2000, his father died of Diabetes. Later in 2004 his mother died as well of TB – could possibly be HIV AIDS. Evarist and his two siblings had to remain to their grandparents who are very old – 70’s and are not able to look after them. His grandfather had heard of Bethany being the best place in Tanzania to look after orphaned children, so he came to Bethany along with the letter from the social village leaders to ask if Bethany could help him look after his grand children. In June 2004, Bethany admitted them. To date, Evarist is a happy boy, gets along well with his fellow children and works very hard.
