Why does the family background of my supported child change?

Families in Tshumbe are typically very big. People do not differentiate between a brother and a cousin, i.e. brother = brother and cousin = brother; there is also no differentiation between a mother and an aunt or a grandma, all are called mother und feel like mothers. Because of that it is often difficult for Manuela to find out who the biological mother is or the sister or the cousin. Accordingly it can happen that first the aunt is identified as the mother and in a later visit another mother appears. We kindly ask you for your understanding! Our western understanding of the family background cannot be universally applied to the rest of the world!
