Family History:
Susana has a brother called Alex and they both live at Bethany. Their parents died at the end of 2005 when Susana was two years old. She was being looked after by a 25 yrs old aunt called Annette Maube after she was stopped from her studies when her sister died so that she take care of these two children. Annette used to stay in the house where her sister was living but her brother in law (Susana’s uncle) who is an alcoholic forced them to move out. They had nowhere to go! The village leader took them at his home until February 2007 when Bethany admitted Susana and her brother Alex. Annette has been struggling since 2005 until she was advised by a village leader to come to Bethany to ask if there was any possibility of helping her.
