Rizza, the second of 6 siblings, was 9 when she came to Face the Children in November 2014. She is joined by one younger sibling, Lean. Living in a poverty situation, they were neglected and then abandoned by their mother, while their father was imprisoned. Left under the care of an ailing grandmother; Rizza took the responsibility of looking after her younger siblings; on the streets of Bay, Laguna begging. Since coming to FTC she and her Lean have grown so much, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and educationally. She is enrolled Frontline Christian Academy.
