Ruwayda was brought to Neema Village by her Aunt when she was 11 months old. When she arrived, she weighed only 9 pounds and was undernourished and underdeveloped. Her mother died shortly after she was born and her Aunt has been trying to care for her.  She was feeding her a thin porridge made with water.  She keeps other children and felt she could not care for Ruwayda.  Ruwayda was not thriving. We will love and care for this sweet girl until she is healthy enough to go home with her family.

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)
