Neema Village operating in the city of Arusha, Tanzania, and is a rescue center for orphaned, abandoned and at-risk babies.

This baby girl came to live at Neema on Sept 10, 2016. She and her twin, Mary, were born premature and have been at the hospital since their birth on June 9th 2016. Unfortunately, their mother died and the grandmother has been caring for the babies in the hospital but could not continue. Many mothers die from complications during childbirth in Africa. It is truly unfortunate for these little ones to lose their mothers 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 in the villages many of these little babies would not survive.
You can help Neema Village to look after these babies by donating for a fine art print.
