Fabian, 4, from Kenya.
One glance at Fabian’s picture will tell you this sweet and smiling 4-year-old lives with a simple sense of joy.
“I like playing with my friends,” he says. “And when I am at home I take care of my pet; my chick. My mom helps me feed it.”
Fabian is the only child of his mother, Mary.
She is the sole support for her son and her grandmother who lives with them.
Mary used to work at a small truck stop in their neighborhood in Kenya, but two years ago she was diagnosed with debilitating arthritis. She can no longer hold a steady job.
More than anything, Mary wants Fabian to go to school.
“I heard that Unbound helps children and the aging and I truly hope my son also benefits,” she said.
Fabian doesn’t understand the pain his mother endures daily, or the difficult time she has providing food, shelter and education for him. But he works hard to behave and do well in school.
Sponsor Fabian and we guarantee his smile will brighten your life. As will his goal for the future.
“I want to be a good boy when I grow up.”
