Alexsei is a 12 year old boy that lives in a small home in the village with his father, who is an alcoholic.  The boy is forced to go out into the woods during the day, pick mushrooms and take them out onto the highway and sell them to get money for food. We went to this home we found the him there alone.  His father will sometimes leave him alone for weeks at a time. At 12 years old Alexsei has learned to take care of himself.  He is a really well mannered boy and was pleasant to be around.  We contacted the Social Services department and Alexsei was removed from his home and taken to a rehabilitation center.
