Jeffrey is the father of six children. In August 2008 his wife died giving birth to a son. With a new baby and five other children he was overwhelmed with grief. Being sick himself and a crippled leg the families corn crop failing because he had no fertilizer, Jeffrey had no idea how he would feed his family. His heart was broken as he sent his two older sons to live with his brother and his new baby to a relative of his wife's sister. Jeffrey was unable to feed the remaining 3 and asked if we would take Oscar five and Astrida two.
Jeffrey's relatives were very upset with his decision to place them in the orphanage, they were in no position to assist him, yet placed curses and spells on him and his other son and promised to continue with it until he took them out, he came to the orphanage totally distraught and took the children back with him, we have not heard of there fate, sadly this is not a uncommon attitude in the region.
