Mama Neema

Mama Neema is a widow, her husband was killed in the mines.  At three years of age her daughter Neema fell in the fire and was burned on her face, hands and arms.  Her fingers fused together and Plaster house was able after a few years to cut her fingers apart.  Now at nine years of age Neema is still needing surgeries.  Mama Neema has sold everything she owns including her bed to try to get money for the surgeries and many doctor visits for Neema.  Finally she came to Neema Village for help.   We have helped her while getting surgery to bend Neema’s arms and have put the family in our Outreach program for monthly support.  We will put Mama Neema in the MAP program and set her up in a vegetable business.   You can help women like Mama Neema by supporting the MAP program at Neema Village,  Mama Neema shed many tears of relief when she learned that Neema Village was going to help her.  Neema is now in school for the first time and doing very well.  She came in last week to show us how well she is writing.  Helping moms like Mama Neema changes their life and changes the lives of those of us who get to help as well.

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.
