He was admitted to Chrystal Children’s Center on the 1st of June 2018 due to mother suffering a mental breakdown/illness and was in Butabika hospital. The social work team at Chrystal;s made a follow up on the mother, and later they came to realize that she had gained back stability and in her proper senses. On 26th July 2018, the social welfare team at Chrysta’s picked her from Batubika as she was discarged and resettled her with her brother. The team also plans on supporting her financially since she has a skill of hairdressing. We believe with this support she will be able to take care of Masaba James, hence his well being and safety.
