Shadrack was picked up from a street in Mwanza city by a very old man called John Baishumike in 2003 when he was about three years old. John treated Shadrack as his own son and he shared everything with the rest of the his family. Recently, Shadrack began to disappear from home so John was worried about this young boy’s life. When He found Shadrack with the help of the police, Mr. John took him to Shalom – a Catholic Organization which helps children mainly in their families so it was not the best solution. Shalom contacted Bethany for more help and on 08/05/2007 Shadrack was admitted at Bethany. There are no details of his parents anywhere.
