In 2003, a woman with AIDS, seven months pregnant and living in a bus terminal in Lusaka, Zambia was found by the good sisters of Kasisi Children's Home. After delivering the baby, Tim Meade, M.D. and a team of volunteers took turns bringing warm formula to the child. Unable to care for her newborn son, the mother asked "Dr. Tim" to take care of the baby. As a sign of gratitude, she named the baby Tim.
It was Tiny Tim’s story that inspired friends and family around the globe to get involved.
