Chinaider was placed in our orphanage this past summer when his mother died after a brief illness. He has an aunt who took in his 3 older sisters but Chinaider and his brother Josue were placed in the orphanage as his aunt didn’t feel she could take in all 5 of the kids. His mom had worked part-time at the mission in St. Louis du Nord as a cook and he had been attending our school there. Chinaider is a fairly quiet and well behaved young boy. It has of course been traumatic for him and his siblings this year but he seems to be adjusting to the orphanage and we are glad we are able to provide a home for him.
