Mominul, 9 years of age
Our sponsored child Mominul is 9 years old. He lives with his parents in a house with corrugated metal roof and private water supply.
Their house is about 30 minutes away from the nearest school.
The majority of the rural community is undernourished and prone to malaria, rheumatism, typhoid fever, smallpox and cholera. Almost half of the children suffer from being under weight, every tenth case is a critical case. The few health centers are badly equipped. In the cities the HIV infection rate is rising rapidly.
