They are dying… of hunger.
The baby’s mother is already pregnant again. She is one of many wives and her husband cannot provide for them. They have nothing in their gardens but cassava (a root that has very little nutritious value).
This little boy is an orphan. Both parents died in the last year and his grandmother, a widow, is not able to take care of herself and this little boy. She is just as thin and wasted.
Pray that there soon will be a functioning Mwinika church that will be able to take care of the orphans and widows in their community!
