Reginah and her kids

Reginah and porridge
Reginah and porridge

Reginah is a sixty one year old guardian from Sizeze village. She is looking after and raising the following orphan family:

  • Mthokozisi, a 15-year old boy, 
  • Siphosenkosi, a 16-year old girl, 
  • Richard, a 9-year old boy, and 
  • Phathiso, a 10-year old girl

The family says they have been struggling to make ends meet and that hunger was the major problem that was threatening the whole family since none of the family members is gainfully employed. This family received three female goats in 2012. The goats have given birth and they now have six goats.  Reginah says they are using manure in their garden plots and milk in tea.  The only problem is that during these past months, rain didn't come in time for the gardens to mature, so the family has been hungry.  

Not wanting to eat the goats before a herd has developed (this is part of our contact with the families we help), AFCA has provided the family with fortified porridge during this season of hunger. 

Reginah says “The porridge is not just ordinary food. It is the medicine that has healed my family. My grand children have been unwell for some time, but since we started eating the porridge, all of them are very active and well.  Thank you to everyone who has given us this gift!”
