Shedrack O. Opue is a resident of St. Joseph Orphanage/School. His parents, Donatus and Mary, are extremely poor farm laborers. His father cannot work much because of illness so most of the responsibility falls on his wife. Born in 2009, Shedrack is the younger of two siblings in his family. His older sister, Ruth, is also a resident of the orphanage. Both the children are provided with healthy meals, clothes and a great education. Shedrack enjoys the sports options that are provided to him and is a very talented soccer player.
