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.

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.
