Alazar’s Mom is the sole provider for Alazar and her husband due to her husband being ill and unable to work. She had to drop out of school in the 2nd grade, so her options are limited. Her current rent is 1,500 Birr ($30). When Mom can find jobs, she works as a day laborer, otherwise she begs in an effort to pay rent and feed her family. Family sponsorship will provide help meeting basic survival needs while offering love and support to Mom and son.
