Lydia Makombé, respected as ‘a Mother Teresa’ type figure and her former businessman-son, Henry are the sole caregivers in a community of approximately 6 500 people.  This embraces several of the small, disadvantaged forest ‘wood hewing’ peoples.  Lydia is a qualified community nurse and assists the community in First Aid and home-based care.


Daily children feeding schemes, life skills training and general upliftment and development, including healthcare issues and home based care of Aids patients, are part of the permanent services rendered.
