Neema – Successfully Completed

Neema was pregnant with her second child when she learned that her husband had given her HIV.  He then abandoned the family.  Neema has a three year old son but became so depressed that she might give her unborn child HIV that she began drinking the traditional alcohol brew.  When the baby was born Neema Village learned of this woman’s situation .  Linda Johnson and Anna went to check on her and then brought her and the new baby and son to stay at Neema Village.  Our Neema Nannies cared for her and she had many counseling sessions with the MAP director Anna.   After a few weeks Neema and the babies moved to Anna’s house for further counseling.  Neema quit drinking and began taking her medicines.  Neema Village has not set Neema up in vegetable stand.  Please be praying for this mother that she will be strong.

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