Victor’s mother died a few months after giving birth to him and his grandmother was raising him when Sanctuary of Hope (SoH) learned about his situation. Victor’s grandmother
sold fish in the Mathare Valley Slum and with 9 children of her own she struggled to also care for Victor. When he came home to SoH in 2006, he was malnourished, had ulcers in his mouth, a fungal infection and was anemic. Today, Victor is social, outgoing and has an adventurous spirit. He loves soccer and spending time with his friends. Victor is challenged by school and tends to need lots of reassurance. Through the love and support of his SoH family Victor is encouraged to work hard and succeed.
