The child is encouraged to be vegetarian even though there is real shortage of healthy food for her to eat as both parents squander the little money they have on beer instead of food for the children.
This is a problem world wide where local people, marginalised, often losing their small parcel of land, or their nomadic way of life are converted to Christianity or Islam and take to the bottle.
Yes help these poor families if you can but they do not need to be browbeaten nor do they need a new belief system.
