Today she feeds and clothes about 160 adults and 300 children, reports goodthingsguy.com.
She comments that
“I started doing house‐to‐house visits in 2000 for parents who were HIV positive and couldn’t get adequate medical care. And I started looking after their children after they had passed. That’s how I started looking after people.”
This brave lady is known as an unsung hero in the community and her desire to help has grown into a major service to the community.
Over the years, other community leaders saw the good work and chose to get involved making this a true good news community story.

Mam Lillian received a massive collection of foodstuffs and household products.
