Arianna came to Neema Village as a healthy 3 month old. Her mother is 18 years old and is an alcoholic and a prostitute. Baby Arianna was left by her mother with her grandmother, who still has small children of her own. The mother said that she would kill the baby if she had to care for her. A neighbor stepped in to help the grandmother after hearing her and the mother fighting often. Social welfare was called to help and Arianna was brought to Neema Village. We will love and care for this precious little one while a safe plan is worked out for her future!

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)
