Herminia* never knew her mother+grew up with her father. Herminia felt that she had no one to share her challenges with, Herminia was lonely. Today, Herminia is regularly visited by Gelita, her Care Worker who she is beginning to trust+share her struggles with.
"When the opportunity arose to be a Care Worker and help care for the children in my community, I jumped at the chance. I understand the need for father figures in the community and I enjoy playing with the children and teaching them life skills.”
Antonio Raiyen is the coordinator of Matsinho B Community Based Organisation in Mozambique.
Early this year Care Workers began walking in the community of Matsinho B, Mozambique. They visited the homes of the most vulnerable children and in July 50 of these children began receiving a daily nutritious meal, as well as support with their education and health care: http://www.handsatwork.org/matsinho-community/
