Lisa-Marie* is 11 years old and lives with her mother. Her Care Worker, Gertrude, faithfully visits her and her mother in their home, building relationships with them and supporting them with not only their physical needs but their emotional and spiritual needs as well. Though Lisa-Marie struggles in school and can become discouraged that many of the children in her grade are younger then she is, she enjoys learning and wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
In April 2018 Mpata became a Community Based Organisation, operating out of its Care Point and with a team of local volunteer Care Workers who exist to care for 50 of the most vulnerable children. Read the story of Mpata: http://www.handsatwork.org/mpata-community/
At the beginning of April the Care Workers from the newly established Mpata Community Based Organisation (CBO) started serving fifty of the most vulnerable children. Praise God. Pray for each child to know the love of their Heavenly Father through the Christ-like love that they see from their Care Workers.
