Life Story Habibu lives with his widowed mother and 9 siblings. Habibu’s father died when he was 6 years old. The family has struggled with a lack of food and funds for other basic needs. His mother has a number of health problems and is hospitalized often. Even without funds for fees, Habibu has remained in school because of his excellent academic performance. His best subjects are English and science, and he hopes to one day become a doctor. Habibu prays for God’s mercy on his family’s situation and for his mother’s health. He worries about becoming a total orphan if she dies.
