A tornado destroyed Faith's rural village, and her family's hut and all their possessions were lost. Human traffickers descended on the village, and started offering people jobs with ready cash. Faith's parents sent her to work in the quarry because they had no way to take care of her, if she had stayed with them.
However, the food available to Faith in the rock quarry was quite limited, and she struggled to survive on her daily meal of rice. The supervisors were cruel and forced even the children to work from before sunrise to sundown. Faith's existence was a endless horrible drudgery breaking rocks and loading them into trucks.
After about a year, Faith was rescued and brought to live at The Sylom Children's Home. Today, she attends the 3rd grade, and her favorite class is science. She hopes to become a doctor. Faith constantly reads books beyond the scope of kids her age.
