Antonio is a widow, 61 years old. After the death of both parents she is raising her six grandchildren and one great grandchild. They are all living in one small room in bad conditions. During the rainy season the rain comes into the house. They can’t all sleep on the one bed so some of the children put their clothes on the floor to sleep. After hearing about this widow, Anna visited the family to see how Neema could help.

First, we will move the family to a larger home. They will need another bed, sheets and blankets. Then we will see how we can help her business. The grandmother is frying and selling small fish in the street so that she can provide for the family. Neema will see how we can enlarge her business.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
James 1:27 (NIV)
