Akhil's mother fled her abusive husband, and she was promised refuge in a rock quarry. However, when she arrived at the place, she realized that she wouldn't be allowed to leave. She and Akhil were both slaves. Akhil was forced to carry water for the other slaves at just six years old. Akhil and his mother were both rescued in the Spring of 2020, and they both came to live at The Sylom Children's Home. She works as a caretaker for the children helping to cook and clean, and Akhil is attending school.
