Fourteen-year-old Sitwe Kalisani looks after her two younger sisters and a younger brother. The children's parents are dead and they have no one else. <br />

The four children live in a tiny hut with a hole in the roof and no protection against the rain or the cold winter nights. <br />

Before receiving help from UNICEF, Sitwe had to work in the fields to support the younger ones. Even then, they could only afford one bowl of maize a day and none of the children were in school. <br />

Nearly half of all children in Malawi live in poverty. Their families struggle to provide the very basics in life - clothes, food, shelter, medicine and a chance to go to school. For many, no matter how hard they try, this struggle ends in failure. So UNICEF is targeting the very poorest and most desperate families and giving them a little bit of money each month. The sums are small, but they make a huge difference.
