Emmanuel is four years old and he will turn 5 on November 24th. He lives on the hill in Hope Center Village with his mother, father, three sisters, and two brothers. His nickname is “Mannu” and he loves it when teams come to Hope Center and call him by name. He and his family used to live in Delmas before the earthquake. They lost everything they had when it happened. He was only a little baby when it happened, so the only home he knew before he moved to Hope Center was the tent city. He didn’t like it there because it was dirty and dangerous. He didn’t get to leave the dark tent much because it wasn’t safe. Now he lives in a beautiful village in a solid house and he has many friends and he can walk to school every day with them. He loves his life. He loves that he can go play soccer with his friends anytime he wants. His favorite subject is math and he wants to be a doctor when he grows up.
