Proud for One Second

Head of the family Patrick Munyambabazi with his wife Janet Kamashamba and their 5 childeren.
They believe the future situation is going to be worse unless a miracle happens. They say they have lived a poor life since they left the forest till now. Patrick says he is happy they were brought out of the forest but he is not happy about the life of begging. "We beg for everything, from food, clothes, money and even sometimes shelter. We don't own anything good like the other members of the community. We have lived a life of begging and our children are heading for the same life." Janet says she feels miserable about her children's future because there is no prospect other than become beggars like themselves. She also is scared of dying to early because of the increased diseases without medication and famine.
