Tadala is a young boy who lives with his sister, grandparents, and 2 cousins. He and his sister started living with their grandfather following the death of both of their parents. Their mother died in 2007 when she was struck by lightning, and the father died in 2011 to unknown illness while in Mozambique visiting relatives. The grandparents also live with two other relatives who are in the Passion village program.
Their grandfather, Mr. Mingu, who attends Mulunguzi Community Church (MCC) is 90 years old and very frail. He and his wife struggle to provide for the grandchildren especially food, clothes, and school supplies. The grandparents are worried about the future of the kids. Worse still, the family lives in a very tiny and poorly ventilated house that is not adequate for 6 people.
