A widow’s struggle
Life has not been easy for 67-year-old widow and mother of two, Hawa Abunassik. She has endured suffering and challenges throughout most of her life. She and other families in the village are plagued with health concerns, lack of food, education, and generations of poverty.
“I encounter a lot of difficulties in finding food and taking care of myself. With the poor rainfall in recent years which does not promote good harvests, life has become very difficult,” she laments.
When Hawa or one of her family members are sick, they have to travel long distances to seek medical care. With no school in the village and no teachers, children grow up without an education. Her great hope is that her village can unite and work together to overcome these challenges.
“I pray that our partnership with World Concern helps us change our lives, and may God help World Concern to help our children,” she said. Hawa’s prayer is a powerful one, and an important first step towards physical and spiritual transformation in her life, family, and community. Join Hawa and Ab Lela village in their journey of transformation.
