Mwiza and his family

Sarah’s blog 30/03/21

Mwiza was highlighed recently, showing what a difference a sponsor can make to a child, especially Mwiza who is disabled. He has been suffering from malnutrion and has had no toys to stimulate him while he sits on his mat all day. Now his muscles are getting stronger because of food to eat and picture books to look at. Toys are on the way and that smile is just gorgeous.

I knew he had one sister, but I wasn’t aware until today that he had three sisters. There are hundreds of children desperate for help, and Levison can’t tell me about them all and the stories of each child. But here is this family’s story.

Mwiza, age 12, lives with both parents and his three siblings. However, their dad is sick so unable to work or provide for his family. All responsibility falls on their mum. She can’t possibly earn enough money to keep them all. She has Mwiza and her sick husband to care for. Life is hard for everyone in Ibuluma but even more so for this family.

We are looking for sponsors for each of these three girls. Sponsorship is £25 per month per child or just under 85p per day. That provides food, a blanket, clothes, soap and education. Imagine the difference that would make to this family if they knew that there was more food for them all. If mum could spend time with her sick husband and with her disabled son. Imagine being part of the team around this family. Get in touch if you would like to help us continue #changinglives
