Mukarutembesa Jean D’ Ark, 49, is a single mother for four children. When she gave birth to her now four-year-old twins, her husband abandoned the family, leaving a kind stranger at the hospital to pay Jean D’Ark’s bill of roughly $7. Jean D’Ark’s family lives in the one-room house of a friend, not owning any land of her own to build a house on. Two of her children’s education is sponsored, while her twins are too young to begin school. All four attend Gardens for Health International’s Early Childhood Development Program, where they are fed once a day.
