Obbo Hannington came to Awinjo House June 2, 2016. Obbo’s father, Okumu Fred quarreled with his wife and as a result burned their house down in 2012 or 2013, and all family records were lost. He died Nov. 2015 of alcohol abuse, and left his wife Aketch Grace and two sons, Ogol John (9 years) and Obbo Hannington (7 years). The wife took the two children to the father’s mother, Nyapendi, in January 2016, but she disappeared. Nyapendi walks about 7 miles to town and mops floors at the Town Counsel building for $45 a month.
Obbo was not going to school or being fed properly before he came to Awinjo House. As a result, he’s had a very grateful heart and has had a very good attitude since he’s been here. Obbo loves to play football (soccer) and is easily one of the most humble children here.
