The little girl had no choice but to run a household as she had no one to rely on. When she was only three-months-old, her father was imprisoned for unknown reasons.

Anna takes the responsibility of cooking, cleaning the house and caring for the two elderlies. Every day, Anna has to wake up early in the morning to prepare meals for her grandmothers. The task isn’t easy for a young child who even has to stand on a stool to reach the stove to prepare their meals.

Because both grandmothers are almost bedridden, Anna did her best to assist them in moving around particularly when they have to go to the toilet or go for a short walk near the house.

With no family or friends to support her, Anna soon caught the attention of a generous neighbor who owns a farm. He allowed the little girl to get fresh vegetables from his farm whenever they are out of food.
