Suan Simeon came from a remote village in Churachandpur. His mother deserted him when he was very young and he was living with an alcoholic father who could barely take care of himself, let alone a child.
"I was sad. I was lonely. I missed my mother and I was scared of my father." He remembers feeling like there was no one there for him.
Now, at 15 years old, he is thriving at Angels' Place. Though he still feels the sadness of losing his family, he is comforted knowing he is surrounded by people who care about his well-being and want him to succeed. Because of his tough childhood, Suan Simeon was behind in school but he is catching up quickly and loves learning. His favorite subject is Science and when he is not busy studying, he enjoys spending free time playing football and practicing acrobatics with friends. The caregivers at the orphanage know him as a fun-loving, energetic and handsome young boy with a bright future ahead. He has come a long way in these few years and he is very thankful to his sponsors for giving him the opportunity for a new life.
