HH 0004: “ Me I am very grateful that Jika Uluntu came to my life because I don’t think I would be still alive. I got a lot of support from health to my children. I used to shout at them every time because of stress and frustrations done by the problems I faced. Now I have noticed that, even them there is improvement in behaviour and I am also trying my best to meet them halfway. So all the improvements it is because of you.”

HH0052: “I was always angry because I lost my husband and child passed away and would not take care of my children, but you were always listening and empower me throughout even if I meet with you on the way. The relationship with my child has now improved and I am working for them and they listen to me.
