Ruth’s children died of HIV/AIDS leaving her to care for four grandchildren in her old age. She sold all of her domestic animals she was rearing and used the money on food to sustain her family. (Cucu is a Kikuyu term of affection that means “grandmother” and is pronounced like “show show”.) CuCu, the oldest of the h.o.w? widows and one the funniest, too, was hospitalized earlier this year, and we are glad to hear she is improving.
