Francis is a smiling boy of 15 years with a heart of absolute gold. Francis is one of the original Anawim kids; he has been living there for almost his entire life. From when Francis was born to when he was about a year old, he was living in a small group-living hut with about 20 other people. Sister Oresoa, founder of Anawim, came to this group home and saw the boy lying on the ground, emaciated, sick, and in desperate need of help. Sister took Francis from these terrible conditions and has given him a new home and a new life. Over the course of 14 years, Francis has grown into the happy, caring boy he is today. When he grows up, Francis hopes to enter the military and defend his country. He is funny, loving, and very energetic, and he always puts a smile on our faces whenever we see him!
