Little Nyarai was only two years old when she was brought to Bread and Water for Africa® partner in Zambia, the Kabwata Orphange and Transit Centre.

She is too young to understand why she is there, but old enough to ask “where’s my mommy?

The sad and tragic fact is that her mother was living in a hospital, deathly ill suffering from a terminal illness and was unable to work and care for her daughter.

“There is no other family,” Kabwata Executive Director Angela Miyanda told us.

With no one else in the world to care for this little girl, there’s no telling what her fate would be, what kind of future she would have…or even if she would have a future.

But with the love and care of Angela and her staff, all dedicated to literally saving the lives of hundreds of children in dire circumstances just like Nyarai, after only two months at Kabwata we are thrilled to learn that she is thriving.

“Nyarai had malnutrition which is now clearing off,” Angela reported.

And this little girl who seeming had no hope and future, has both.
