Michael’s mom has gone back to school to try to improve the family’s situation, but currently has little income. She relies on the generosity of family to help feed her kids.
Michael did not have proper shoes and winter boots, nor socks that matched. He was coming to school wearing slippers.
With support from HLF, Michael got new shoes, socks, jeans, a winter coat and boots.
He also discovered a sense of pride in himself that he did not have before.
