Halima (Glory)

Halima is about 24 years old with two children. Halima and her husband were a Muslim couple. She injured her finger but did not tell her husband and she kept it covered. When he found out, he was upset that she did not tell her. He left and went to marry another woman. He left her with some things, but she was alone, and she had a lot of pain in her finger. She came to Anna’s office at Neema and was asking for help from Neema. We have helped her pay rent and she has had one surgery. Neema is hoping to help her have another surgery in August. We will talk about a business for her in the future when she is back to good health. Halima was baptized at Neema Village and became a Christian, her name is now Glory.

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.
