Mikenley is a sweet little four year old from the village of Galette Chambon. He lives with his mother, grandmother (Melisia), two brothers, one sister, and a house full of cousins and aunts. They all live in a small compound of structures mostly made of sticks and mud. The grandmother pretty much takes care of the whole family. She has no source of income, but she sometimes sells limes, mangos, and avocados that grow in her yard. She often comes to Hope Center to ask for rice and beans so that she can feed her family. If you remember our first malnutrition patient, Betsy, you will understand the connection because she is Betsy’s grandmother. Mdm Melisia has been trying to get her grandson Mikenley sponsored since last year. She will be thrilled when someone selects him. Mikenley enjoys playing with his friends, siblings, and cousins. He doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up, but he is excited about going to school.
