His mother died in 2004 and in 2005 her father died as well. He has got one brother and a sister at Bethany and one brother who lives at his grandfather’s in Yitwimila village. When his mother died, all the four children had to be taken by their grandfather who is very old and has no ability to look after them all. It is where their uncle brought them to Bethany so that they can be taken care of properly. To date Shaibu is a happy boy, he works hard and his behavior is excellent. He gets ill from time to time but the balanced diet he is being provided helps him survive together with medication.
