God Bless Aunt Menchie

Reporter: THEY WERE

RAISING THEIR OWN CHILDREN

WHEN THEY DECIDED TO TAKE IN

THEIR NEPHEW, JOSEPH, WHO

HAD BECOME AN ORPHAN.

HE WAS TWO WHEN HE CAME TO

LIVE THERE AND HE WAS THIN

AND MALNOURISHED.

I KNEW WE HAD TO TAKE HIM

IN, NO MATTER WHAT.

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WOULD

MANAGE FINANCIALLY, BUT WE

WANTED TO GIVE HIM A HOME.

Reporter: RIGHT AT THAT

TIME, CBN STARTED A PROGRAM

IN THE COMMUNITY TO HELP

KIDS LIKE JOSEPH.

EACH MONTH WE GAVE THE

FAMILY EXTRA FOOD TO HELP

HIM GAIN WEIGHT, AND WE GAVE

THEM PREMEDICAL CHECKUPS.

AND TO HELP HER RELIEVE SOME

OF THE FINANCIAL BURDEN AT

HOME, WE GAVE HER A GRANT TO

START A SMALL BUSINESS.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE A

SMALL GROCERY STORE.

AND NOW WE'RE NOT JUST

SELLING FOOD, BUT WE SELL

SCHOOL SUPPLIES AND EVEN

UMBRELLAS.

Reporter: TODAY JOSEPH

IS A HEALTHY, ACTIVE

5-YEAR-OLD WHO LIKES PLAYING

AND GOING TO SCHOOL.

AND HE NO LONGER CALLS HER

AUNTIE.

HE CALLS HER MAMA.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR ALL

YOU DID TO HELP JOSEPH AND

OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY.
