Elidaima

Elidaima’s husband left one morning and never returned.  For seven years Elidaima has not known if he was alive or dead. She and her 3 sons became homeless and were begging for help when she knocked on the door of a kind woman who let her stay in one of the small rooms in her home.  She has been asking neighbors to let her wash their clothes to have money to feed the boys but she says there are many days that the boys go to school and then to bed without eating for the day.  Elidaima was very tired and ready to give up on life when she heard of Neema Village.  We went to her home to visit and were shocked at how little she had.  There was one small foam mattress on the floor where the 3 boys slept.  Mother slept on rags.  After visiting with her we decided she could do a milk cow business.  With the help of Neema staff a good milk cow was located and purchased for her.   The cow is pregnant and producing 12 liters of milk per day.  The cow cost $700 USD.

Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.
