Tadala is a 7 year old boy and lives with his sister, grandparents, and 2 cousins. He and his sister started living with their grandfather following the death of both their parents. Their mother died in 2007 when she was struck by lightning, and the father died in 2011 to unknown illness whilst in Mozambique visiting relations. The grandparents also live with two other kids 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, not good enough for 6 people.
