Mama Amiri’s husband left her after her baby was born. She moved back home to live with her parents who are very poor. She was sick and in a very bad situation. Neema Village was called by Social Welfare to help with the baby, Amiri, until Mama was able to take care of him.
The Neema Village MAP program has set Mama Amiri up in a small food shop where she cooks rice and beans, chapati and other foods for her customers. She is doing very well and Amiri has been able to return home. We love to see our babies return to their families. Her small food store costs $500.
Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
