At 75 years old, Esther finds herself raising 3 orphaned grandchildren and trying to provide for them. With the last 2 seasons of drought in southern Malawi, she is having to turn to aid agencies such as CARE in order to be able to do so.
CARE’s Johanna Mitscherlich was recently in Greece where more than 50,000 refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq are stranded. She describes the awful conditions families are forced to endure and the uncertain future one family in particular is waiting for.
Baby vividly remembers the day three years ago when her children were chased from school because their school fees weren’t paid. It nearly broke her heart. She simply couldn’t afford the cost. But then Baby joined a CARE savings and loan group and has improved the lives of her children and her community in Ghana!
