Getulida's a Great Grandmother

Getulida is a widow that lives in a small village in Uganda with her family. She's the mother of ten children, but unfortunately disease has taken three of them away from her. When her son Baisi died in 2009, Getulida stepped up and began raising his three children that were left abandoned and alone. It meant more mouths to feed, and more responsiblity, but also more love and joy. Getulida stepped up for her family when they needed her the most, and now they have received the gift of a beautiful new home with a latrine!  Thanks for giving them this tremendous gift.
