Six-year-old Anthony’s* family has faced difficult challenges; Anthony’s father passed away two years ago, and his mother is severely ill and unable to work to provide for her three young children. However, in the past two years, the family has been shown great love and support by the Care Workers and the surrounding community. Anthony has grown to be healthy, happy and strong under the watchful eye of the Care Workers, and his mother is thankful for the support she receives in caring for him.

Growing up, Esther moved between different relatives after her parents’ deaths, but was often mistreated. Eventually she was taken in by a kind family who taught her about Christ. She wanted to become a Care Worker because she wants to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable, so that they don’t have to experience what she went through. Her desire is to see the most vulnerable loved and cared for.
Today Esther, alongside fellow Care Workers, serves 200 of the most vulnerable children in the community of Susu in Zambia. Please pray for our Care Workers who have committed to serving across Africa.
“In Susu Community, we are supporting the Care Workers as they feed 150 of the most vulnerable children. One of the children, Totela*has faced many challenges. She has challenging health issues and receives regular life-saving medication. This medication must be taken with food. Totela is often unwell and unable to attend the Care Point where she can receive a meal every day. Understanding the importance of her daily meal, the Care Workers have committed to delivering food to her home when she is unable to attend. They came together to contribute maize meal for Totela and her family and helped to provide lotion and soap to clean the rash that she commonly has. They not only bring food but life and love into her home.
Alongside the Care Workers, we dream of establishing a second Care Point in Susu Community, so children like Totela don’t have to walk as far to receive care.”
