The children often went hungry and the amount earned by their mother was not enough to pay for their school fees. She was considering taking the children out of school and making them work with her to earn enough money just to survive. Fortunately, the administrator from a nearby home supported by World’s Children visited their village and learned about their sad situation. She told the mother that the children’s home could take her two daughters where they would be fed, clothed and educated. In June 2015 the mother decided to bring both of her daughters to the orphanage.
