Josephine’s children have grown up with moments of pain and shame brought on by poverty.  Sometimes they have little or no food.  At times their house has been locked due to rent arrears.   It is painful to see their loving mum unwell and crying for help holding onto her children to console her.

Last week, we delivered food to this family; we paid three months’ rent arrears.  We also paid some of the school requirements for Mutinda and Mutende. Yet 1 in 8 people go to bed hungry every night….
