Apollo is a sweet young boy. He lives with his aunt and has two siblings, a brother and a sister. His parents are not involved in his life. His aunt works hard as a laborer to provide for herself and the children. Unfortunately, his aunt does not make enough money to take care of Apollo’s needs and that’s why he is currently not going to school. Apollo loves to play soccer and dodge ball. He is looking for a sponsor who will help him and his guardian afford the Bible training, education, and nutritious food AMG provides.
