Soon after landing in Zambia, Maureen McCormick knew there was something about Mary, a 14 year-old girl she now supports through Children International, a U.S.-based humanitarian organization. Mary's parents died three years ago from AIDS, leaving her to raise her four younger brothers and sisters.
Mary works odd jobs to put food on the table, while her little sister, Manase, cares for their younger brother.
"Can you imagine a 7 year-old girl that has to be a mother to her little brother. That's beyond my comprehension," said McCormick.
