AN INCREDIBLE BOND
The brothers have an incredible bond. “Lawrence is my little brother that I love very much, and I would do anything to help him,” says Leolida.
Sometimes Leolida goes to bed hungry because he has given his food to Lawrence. But it’s not always enough. Malnutrition is a constant danger.
Luckily, when Lawrence got sick, our community health volunteer Mark was there to give him the medicine and nutritious food he needed to get better.
Now, Lawrence gets regular check-ups to make sure he’s staying strong and healthy.
As for Leolida, seeing his brother get better has inspired him to have big ambitions. “I want to become a doctor,” he says, “so I can help other young children like my brother Lawrence.”
