Mr. Lama's death was caused because of worry over finances. His children needed more than he could provide and the family lived in dire poverty and so it all became too much for him. Mann and Jagat went to visit there and Mrs. Lama was naturally extremely upset and distressed about the family's future now. Fortunately the children's sponsors have helped out with donation money which will help them with food and rent until they can resettle their lives. The children are doing well in school and are good students and hopefully continue to study well so they can help their mother in the years to come.
