Jerald Malamba, the Africompassion Vision bearer, only knows his mother and his grand- mother as the only parents. He was raised by his maternal grandmother, his birth happened at a time when his mother was still a young school girl. Jerald’s mother had to drop her Education to get married at her younger not as usual. Having got un-expected bay boy who needed a continuous care, she forcefully got to an early marriage with the intention that this could be the only solution due to her then temporary situation. Unfortunately, the “second father,” ignored the baby and baby Jerald had to be taken to his grandmother who was at her 70s. Jerald was then transferred to an orphanage! Painfully, Jerald never had the opportunity to feel the love of his biological parents. His mother having got pregnant, and HIV/AIDS infected, she lost hope and never wanted to live with any so called a husband.
She left her second husband and moved to a nearby town and later died a young beautiful lady with a lost hope! Thanks to God Jerald wasn’t infected during his birth. Jerald has a great passion for progression and forward movement; and strives to empower and push each person he meets towards their destiny.
