After their parents died of AIDS, Clive’s sister Mercy took on the household responsibilities, including cooking, cleaning and caring for her HIV-positive brother. Every day after school, Mercy cooked dinner for herself and Clive. Each month, the orphans received a food pack containing dried fish, rice, peanut butter, corn meal, dried and canned beans, cooking oil, salt, canned meat, sugar, Vaseline and soap, provided by Baptist Global Response (BGR), a Southern Baptist relief and community development organization. The monthly food packs allowed the children to continue their education instead of working.
