Chad: How Communities Are Rebuilding Lives

Paul O'Brien discusses his trip to Chad and how communities are rebuilding their lives: “The biggest challenge facing mothers in Chad is to feed their children and keep them healthy.

One mother tells me that she had nine children, but only four survived.”
