Latifa. (deceased)

The local hospital called Angel for help with a young woman who had had a baby at the hospital.  She was homeless and had no money to pay her bill for the c-section.  Latifa had been working as a house girl but the family moved away and left the house and left Latifa alone in the house.  She was pregnant and had no one to help her.  She moved onto the streets and soon got pregnant.  After having the baby she developed a severe infection in the incision but the hospital released her anyway.  When she arrived at Neema we could see that she was septic and badly infected with a horrible smell.  We took her to a small clinic down the street and they were shocked that the hospital would release her.  We moved her into the MAP house and began taking her everyday to the clinic to have her wound cleaned and dressed.  She is better now and coming to the women’s classes at Neema Village.  She will begin plans to start a business soon.   You can help young mothers like Latifa by donating to the MAP program at Neema Village.

When you leave this earth you can take nothing you have received, only what you have given.
