Motiaba

Motiaba
Motiaba passed away on the eve of Gobal Giving's March Open Challenge. She was our African mother. She was the first to open the door to her community, a small village where The BARKA Foundation has been returning for 4 years. She cooked for us, housed us, washed our clothes and showed us unconditional love and acceptance. In 2008 she had an amputation of a gangrenous foot. For the next two years she suffered silently without medication, without relief, and without a complaint. Motiaba is a testament to the beauty, kindness and strength of women in Africa.
