Kaptagat Children's Home
Joyce's father passed away in 2003, leaving Joyce in the care of her mother. He was survived by his wife and 4 children. Immediately after his death, his brothers chased his wife out of the house and claimed all of the his family's property. The family thus became homeless until a Good Samaritan accommodated them in her home for a short period. After working a number of casual labor jobs, Joyce's mother saved enough money to rent a small place for her family to stay. Even though the family now has a humble shelter, their lack of a stable income has made it extremely difficult to care for Joyce's basic life needs.
