Eliza. – Successfully completed

Eliza Joackim is 50 years old and has two children.  She is a widow of 20 years.  Her husband was HIV before he died.  He left her with no home, no job, no business and alone in a very difficult situation.  Her 14 year old son fathered a child and then ran away and the young mother abandoned the baby with Eliza.  She is raising the grandchild.  She came to Neema Village asking for food.  Neema’s MAP program was closed at the time so Anna and Mama Musa directors at Neem personally gave her rice, sugar, flour, oil etc.  She has now been given a milk cow from the MAP program.  Hopefully she will be able to sell the milk and have a good business.

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.
