Mohammed Salimu

This little guy came to Neema in mid June 2014. His mother had gone into the hospital to have the baby, it was decided she should have a c-section but when she began to hemorrhage there is a lack of clean blood supply and unfortunately she died. The Father is having a hard time dealing with the loss of his wife. Since formula cost ten to twelve dollars a can and the average Tanzanian only makes around $100 per month, these dads cannot afford formula. Neema House in Arusha was asked to keep little Mohammed and we were more than willing to do that.

It is always a sad thing for the dads to bring these little motherless ones in to Neema. He is a beautiful baby who smiles and coos a lot.


Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.
