After the death of my father, my mother had a very big challenge taking care of me without a job. She decided to move with me and my twin brother from Arua to Kampala looking for a job to help us survive. We ended up living in the slums were our mother was washing clothes to survive. Life is hard in the slums, there isn’t enough produce to go around.
