Joyce Daniel Mungaya

On March 15, Neema House received a call that a mother had died of TB leaving this sweet baby girl. Born Jan 25, Joyce was barely two months old and very tiny but appeared healthy. In Africa, pregnant and new mothers, especially those with other complications like TB, die at a rate of one in every 39, an appalling statistic where in America the rate is one in 4,700! Joyce has 5 siblings and the father cannot care for this little one. In homes with no refrigeration and formula being very expensive, for a family who lives on less than $100 a month, babies like Joyce have little chance of survival. She will live at Neema until the family is able to care for her. It cost $300 dollars each month to keep a baby at Neema. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

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.
