The Durban family has three children: Fred (18 years old), Charles (15 years old), and the only girl Margret (14 years old). The children’s mother died in 2006 due to an unknown disease. Their father got remarried in another village and does not come to see or send any support to the kids. Their closest guardian is their aunt who lives nearby but cannot afford to support the family.
They struggle to eat twice a day, It is a rare day when they are able to get three meals. Fred left school in Standard 4 because he lacked school requirements, has since gone back to school. Charles is in Standard 4 at Namitsitsi Primary School and Margret is in Standard 5 at the same school.
The family lacks many basic necessities such as food and clothes. They also live in a small grass-thatched house. If admitted into the program, the children will receive these necessities. Above all, they will be introduced to Christ and have a family that cares for them.
