He, along with his sister, were brought to FTC by the government social welfare agency (DSWD). His story is one of malnourishment, abandonment by his father, and left only to the care of his mother. His mother, however, is deaf and mute and has no job or any other source of income. Because of this, the children would go out and beg jeepney passengers for money, despite the many dangers they would encounter. The mother could not change this need for begging by the children, because the kids were literally starving. Now, in our care, Melky is doing well and advancing in his studies at Frontline Christian Academy. Now his mother does not need to be concerned everyday for her children's survival.
