Siliya Milliward

Siliya Milliward is an 8-year-old boy. He has a smile that could light up a room and a very creative soul. He loves to draw pictures, and spends much of his time creating art. Siliya studies at a local primary school. His favourite subject is Chichewa and he wants to become a teacher when he grows up.Siliya lives with his mother and five siblings in a rural community called Dress, a village located in the Mchinji district in central part of Malawi.There, they live in a small house with a single room; the house is made of mud bricks and a makeshift thatched roof that leaks during the rainy season. Our AIM has helped build them a better home, and even installed solar lighting, which provides them with electricity. Siliya’s mother is the sole breadwinner of the family. She is a farmer who earns every low income of about K25, 000 (less than US $ 35) per month, which is scarcely enough t to provide for the basic needs of the family. Thus, Siliya and his siblings often are forced to skip meals, wear the same clothing for weeks, and rarely make it into a doctor’s office when they are feeling sick. But Our AIM wants to change all that. At our HCC in Tongozala, we offer free medical care for children and adults in Mchinji, clean clothing and even trade school for women, so that Siliya’s mother might learn a new set of skills that can help her get a better paying job. If we can provide for the essentials for children like Siliya, they can be free to chase their dreams.
