What is poverty?

We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless.  The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.
   - Mother Theresa

Joyce, one of the long-time committed Kafwa health workers in Zambia, once remarked, "The greatest thing we've ever done in our community, is provide the Isubilo [grief support program] for the orphans."  Initiated in 2011, the Kafwa have used this 13-week program to love hundreds of orphans back to life. 

The biggest payoff?  Seeing these same timid withdrawn children seven years later as typical middle school students full of confidence and even a bit sassy!  What a miracle the Kafwa have performed!
