(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — There is a six-year-old boy in Central Trinidad orphaned by crime.

He has no mother to wipe his tears if he hurts, and no father to hold him steady as he tries to ride a bicycle.

Christmas, birthdays and special occasions are spent with grandparents and other family members who have stepped up to support him.

The child’s father was shot dead less than three weeks before Christmas Day in 2018.
