My name is Dilaxshana and I am the youngest of 4 siblings. I have one brother, who is the oldest, and two sisters. About 12 years ago, my father developed heart disease and because of his condition, he was no longer able to find work. He struggles to provide a steady income. My father’s condition has made my mother depressed and has mentally affected her. In the past, she has reached out to relatives seeking help, but nobody offered any help. She has now started a poultry farm and earns just enough money to feed my siblings and I. My mother does not make enough to provide for our other basic needs, our education, or our medical expenses. I try not to bother my mother too much, and try to manage what I can by myself. My siblings are studying in the local high school and are very smart. I enjoy school as well and I hope to, one day, become a doctor. With your support, I can continue with my education and achieve my goals.
