Twin brothers, Joshua and Caleb are happy and healthy. You can see the transformation a healthy diet can make with a vulnerable child. Featured below is a recent photo of the twin boy's half sister with her daughter Elisee carrying her own infant Sadaam. She brought the twins and Flora to Sabuli in May 2014 in desperation because she could not feed and care for her half siblings that were abandoned by her father after the mother died in child birth. Her son Sadaam is older than the twin boys, but much smaller due to malnourishment. CongoVoice is arranging funds to support Sadaam, Elisee and their mother.
