In 2008, political turmoil forced thousands of Kenyans into displacement camps around Kenya. Grace’s brother and her grandmother found shelter in one of the camps, but Grace’s
mother chose life on the streets. After moving around from place to place, Grace ended up back with her grandmother in the displacement camp. In 2012, her grandmother was involved in an accident and was admitted to the hospital for extensive care. There was no one to care for Grace; her mother had left. Grace’s brother had already found refuge with the Sanctuary of Hope (SoH) family, and after much searching, the Hope’s Promise staff found five year old Grace alone and surviving by begging for food. They brought her home to the SoH family in December, 2012.
