Ameer Khan lives in Hyderabad with his mother and siblings. Ameer likes to look at animals for fun and when he grows up, he wants to be a doctor. Ameer is an excellent student, who works very hard in school. Last year, his GPA was 81%! Unfortunately, Ameer’s father passed away in 2009 from a seizure that caused him to go into cardiac arrest. Ameer’s mother started working from home slicing areca nut after her husband’s death, but only earns 200 rupees each week – that is only $4 CAD. Ameer’s mother also does not receive any sort of financial support from the government. His older brother also works in an autobody shop and earns a little money that helps Ameer and his family survive. Ameer, his mother, and his four siblings all live in a single room. They are also forced to share a washroom with four other families. Ameer’s mother wants a better future for her son and her family, but she is beginning to feel helpless.
