And Georgiana is like a little mother to her sister Maria, often carrying her and taking good care of her.
“She spoon-feeds her, changes her nappies and puts her to bed,” Paula said.
Georgiana said, “I always leave my classroom last, because my classmates don’t take all the
milk we receive from school. I take it home and give it to Maria.
“One day I had so many cartons of milk that one of them broke and spilled in my backpack,
destroying my notebooks. A friend at After School club helped me clean it all up!”
And because of MWB, Georgiana is taken care of, too.
At Easter, she and her family are not forgotten. A MWB tradition in this community is to
deliver loaves of bread at Easter to families living in poverty, along with literature explaining
the significance of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
The tradition points people to Jesus, the Bread of Life, and testifies of Jesus’ sacrifice for us
– his body broken for us. Each loaf of bread is delivered with a Bible verse, “Jesus said to
them, ‘I am the Bread of Life’” (John 6:35a).
“The family might have the earthly bread for just one day,” said Paula, as she placed the
loaves of bread into a basket. “But they can know Jesus and that is forever. This is our aim.”
