This momma, Adelina, is suffering with a goiter and will need surgery. She is a widow, her husband died from the sickness. As the days have gone on, her goiter has worsened. Her family kicked her out. Her mother is very poor and cannot afford anything, so she was sleeping in the kitchen. We are working to get surgery for her. We need sponsors for Adelina, so she is able to get this surgery. She is at Neema staying in the MAP apartments. She will begin counseling and meeting with the other MAP moms. We will talk about a business for her in the future, but right now we would like to get her to better health. You can support these MAP (Mothers Against Poverty) moms by donating to the MAP program at Neema Village.

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.
