When Vince’s* father became ill, the family sold their land and all their possessions in a desperate attempt to provide the medical intervention and care he needed. But tragically, when Vince was just two years old, his father passed away. This left his mother, Natasha*, alone in caring for nine young children. Seeking some support to raise Vince and his siblings, Natasha moved her family in with her mother-in-law. But this did little to ease the heavy burden resting upon her shoulders as she worked her on a family plot of land and then selling vegetables at the market, or searching desperately for odd jobs in the community. Unfortunately, this did not earn her enough to feed her children or provide for basic needs in the family. When Vince turned six, Natasha did not have the funds for him to start attending school. When local volunteer Care Workers began caring for children in the community of Buhimba, outside of Goma, Vince and his siblings where one of the first families identified as amongst the most vulnerable. Care Workers invited them to attend the Buhimba Care Point where the priority was to give them daily nutritious food, the first step in addressing their malnutrition. The children also receive support with their basic health care and were able to start attending school. Care Workers Honorine and Bernadette began to visit Vince, his siblings and his mother, Natasha in their home. Over the years, they have built a strong relationship with the family and Natasha looks forward to their regular visits. Through these, she knows that she is not alone in caring for her children anymore.
