Funding from Canadian Foodgrains Bank being used to help orphan family

WINNIPEG, Man. -- In a village in the Jacobabad District of Pakistan’s Sindh province—an area hard hit by floods in the last several years—an eleven year-old orphan who looks after his four younger siblings is receiving help from Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

“Our situation was not good before the floods because of the death of my father, but it got worse when my mother died shortly after the floods,” says Javed. “The entire responsibility of the house was on my shoulders.”
