How One Mother Encourages Her Daughter Despite Their Challenges With Food and Water

"Chrissy is such a joyful child."

Florence and her daughter Chrissy have a special bond. The two love to sing and dance together. In the evenings, after Chrissy returns from school, they talk and cook dinner. These small gestures help keep their minds off the challenges the family faces with food and water, even if just for a moment. In Malawi, where Chrissy and Florence live, quality food and water is in short supply. The lack of food drains Chrissy of energy. The dirty water can make her sick and keep her home from school.
