Mariette & Moïse
Date of birth
06/14/07 – 02/12/11
Start of care
Mariette and Moïse’s dad left his wife and children behind. Soon after, having no income, their mom decided to leave for Niger to find a job. She left her children alone at the age of 3 and 7. Mariette and Moïse have not heard from their parents ever since.
Their aunt agreed to take them in, but she did not have the financial means to provide for them. For some time, she was not able to carry out her business (selling akpan) due to severe pain in her hips. She was confined to bed nearly all day. Mariette had to leave school in CE1 (second grade) to do small jobs (selling water at the market).
