On 8th March, the 21-year-old mother of these 3 small kids died. The children are aged 5, 1 and 6 (see photo). The father is long gone. The grandmother is the only remaining family member to take care of the children. She makes very little money by washing other peoples clothes.
Thanks to a donation from Sonja Christensen, the family now receives a weekly food pack in order to reduce the hardship.
Many of the children in Carita Feliz come from Barrio Solidaridad, a community of 220 very poor houses. Every rainy season the community is flooded, often four ft high. The resulting chaos - especially with latrines being flooded - makes the houses uninhabitable. Thanks to a donation from Ib Moller a drainage canal more than 100 m long will eliminate the problem.
