Ruwayda

Ruwayda was brought to Neema Village by her Aunt when she was 11 months old. When she arrived, she weighed only 9 pounds and was undernourished and underdeveloped. Her mother died shortly after she was born and her Aunt has been trying to care for her.  She was feeding her a thin porridge made with water.  She keeps other children and felt she could not care for Ruwayda.  Ruwayda was not thriving. We will love and care for this sweet girl until she is healthy enough to go home with her family.


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