Grace's parents entered a rock quarry to work for their survival while her mother was 4 months pregnant. By the time she turned 4 years old, both of her parents had died from a lung disease common among quarry workers caused by the dust. Grace lived in the quarry. She was cared for by some of the older female slaves.
When she was big enough to carry a water cup, the supervisors put her to work from dawn to dusk carrying cups of water to the 80 thirsty workers. Endless hours of walking in the scorching sun for a small child. When she was rescued in March of 2020, Grace spoke so softly that it was hard to understand her.
Today, she lives at the Sylom Children's Home where she receives true love and affection from the caretakers, pastors and older children. She is attending school and adjusting to living in freedom. She loves picture books and really enjoys her English class. Someday, she dreams of being a teacher.
