All Furida could do was watch as her home collapsed in a heap of mud and sticks on the ground. Imagine losing everything you have in the blink of an eye.
Furida is no stranger to loss. 13 of her 15 children died of HIV/AIDS. She cared for and loved a grandson for 8 years before he too died of HIV/AIDS.
Alone and impoverished, Furida knew that grandmothers in her position typically do not have happy lives to look forward to.
Fortunately for Furida, she had YOU.
Because of YOUR support, Furida was able to be part of a Granny Group. And, knowing that her home was dangerous, her fellow members had chosen Furida to be among the grandmothers to receive a new home.
So, on the day her worst fear was realized, her greatest dream came true. The builders arrived that very same day to build her new home and kitchen.
YOU rescued her a day from homelessness.
Nyaka has many stories like Furida's. Stories of the amazing things YOU are doing to change lives. But, for every happy story, there are many more grandmothers who we couldn't reach.
YOUR continued support and love means more happy stories.
