Meet Mercy, A Neema Village Success Story

This sweet baby girl came to live at Neema on Sept 10, 2016. She and her twin, Mary, were born prematurely and have been at the hospital since their birth on June 9th.

Unfortunately their mom died and the grandmother has been caring for the babies in the hospital but could not continue.

We lose so many moms from complications during childbirth here in Africa. It is so sad for these little ones who lose their moms at the most critical time in their lives. Formula is very expensive and out of the reach of most African families.

With no sterile water, no electricity for refrigeration and little medical help out in the villages many of these little motherless ones will not survive. But you can help Neema care for them. Sponsorships start at $30 a month but it costs us $300 per month to keep a baby at Neema. Any amount per month you can help will be greatly appreciated. See how you can help: Sponsor a Baby

Neema House Child

Purchasing a print from WorldPix enables WorldPix to provide financial support to Neema Village, helping these children receive an education and prepare them for adulthood with a future.

For a one of kind experience, Neema Village also offers volunteer opportunities to work onsite with the organization and the children.
