Widow Neema

Written 01.09.2022 12:43 under Archive

Very recently we were called on by a young widow and the mother of five children.
 
Her name is Neema, she is 35 years old and lives in Maasai land. She had fallen sick and was re-questing medical assistance here in Arusha. She contacted us to ask for financial support for this and we decided to help her.
 
When she was well again we went to see her. Neema then told us how she had lost her husband:
“Two years ago my husband suddenly became ill and collapsed. He was immediately taken to the hospital. But he lost his memory and could not talk. At the time I was expecting one of the children. Eight months later he died and three days after his death I gave birth to a baby boy by caesarean (another expense).”
 
In order to provide money for the eight months long illness, Neema had to take a loan equivalent to 2,500 DKK. In order to get the loan she had to pawn her fields. Whenever she I able to pay back the loan she will receive the fields back. However, this situation is really difficult for this widow. She and her children very much need to grow crops on their fields in order to survive.
 
It was heartbreaking to listen to her story. I was crying within. I would love to help get back her fields by giving her that money. If you wish to help please send your gift to via IBAN Account: DK 7097 1207 4179 3075 Swift/Bic code: JYSPDK2G and mark it “MBU TZ Field”.
 
God blesses every happy giver. If you wish to help please send us a mail and we will ensure that she gets back the fields before the rainy season, which is expected to begin in October.

Hvilken smuk efterår vi har her i Danmark, flotte farver, mildt vejr og regn i passende mængder.  
I morgen tidlig flyver jeg retur til Tanzania hvor tørken er ekstrem forfærdelig da mange områder ingen regn har fået i 2022. 
 
Håber du vil få tid til at læse sidste nyt fra arbejdet vi står midt i.
 
God læselyst.
 
Kærlige hilsner
Mirjam
