Ensure Comfort for Grandmothers

by Chikumbuso
Oct 26, 2012


Let us not forget our grandfathers. In Ng'ombe, Lusaka there are many old men who do not have work, homes, or people to care for them. One of these men is White. White became a part of Chikumbuso back in 2007 when we began working with grandmothers. He and his wife lived together in a very small home and were desperate for help. A few years later his wife died but there was no way we could abandon him for not being a "grandmother".

White is great, never complains and is always so happy to see us.   Presently he is being kept by his daughter, but they are so poor he is obliged to go to the corner and beg with his hands out for money.  White's daughter is a maid and does the best she can to bring money to the house but with 2 boys and grandchildren in school there is not much to go around. Help us, help this family.
