There are 11 in the household including her husband, 8 children ranging from 3 to 20, plus one grandchild (of the 20 year old daughter).Her husband was a porter at a steel fabricating corporation but there was no work and so was let go in May 2007. She makes necklaces. They have no plot to grow food.The family has lived in Jinja for 5 years. They came here from the Pader District, Patong village, because of the war.Her husband is unemployed, and they have no land or house. They cannot afford the rent nor school fees (only 3 children are in school due to lack of fees.) One son has a hearing problem and a mental problem.
