James was admitted to Chrystal Children’s Center on June 1, 2018, when his mother was hospitalized in Batubika due to mental illness. The social work team at Chrystal’s made a follow up visit to the mother, and later realized that her mental health had improved and that she had gained back her stability. On July 26, 2018, the social welfare team at Chrystal’s picked her from Batubika, as she was discharged and resettled her with her brother. The team plans to support her financially, since she has a skill of hairdressing. We believe that with this support, she will be able to take care of Masaba James, hence his well being and safety.
