Umzi Wethu Success Story

Abandoned at birth, Lwazi Xinwa (24) spent his first five years growing up in a children’s home in Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape. Adopted by loving parents, Lwazi spent the next eight years thriving in a stable household.

However, at age 13 his life turned upside down once again. His father was diagnosed with a terminal illness, and Xinwa’s parents revealed to him that he had been adopted. “I was so angry, so many mixed feelings,” says Xinwa. “I was so upset that my father was sick but I felt angry at the same time.”
