Neema – Successfully Completed

Neema was pregnant with her second child when she learned that her husband had HIV.  He then abandoned the family.  Neema has a three year old son but became so depressed that she might have given her unborn child HIV that she began drinking the traditional alcohol brew.  When the baby was born Neema Village learned of this woman’s situation .  Linda Johnson and Anna went to check on her and then brought her and the new baby and son to stay at Neema Village.  Our Neema Nannies cared for her and she had many counseling sessions with the MAP director Anna.   After a few weeks Neema and the babies moved to Anna’s house for further counseling.  Neema quit drinking.  Neema Village has now set Neema up in vegetable stand.  Please be praying for this mother that she will be strong.

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)
