Child's Background Story:

Lucy comes from the dump-site area where all garbage from Nakuru goes to. She was living with her grandmother as her mother is a teen who was not able to take care of her and the little she got from selling scrap metals and used plastics for resale, she would spend all of it on alcohol. Her grandmother was not able to take care of her as she had no stable income and at times they would go hungry due to lack of food thats when the village elder from the dump site intervened and spoke to Pastor Sammy so that she would get help with education, basic needs, protection and care and she was taken in along with her aunt and cousin.
