Njeri's early life was marked by significant challenges. She was forced to discontinue her education at a young age in order to care for her ailing mother. During this period, Njeri was diagnosed with diabetes, which necessitated frequent hospital visits. Finding a willing relative to stay with proved difficult, as her impoverished family members were unable to bear the responsibility of providing medical treatment beyond their means.
Currently, Njeri resides with a married brother who, despite having a family of his own, struggles to meet her various needs. However, thanks to the support provided by CHEP, Njeri has been able to return to school. Recent months have presented additional hardships for her, including a leg injury and vision problems that required the use of glasses.
Despite these formidable obstacles, we have successfully addressed her essential needs, including ensuring she receives proper nutrition, which is especially crucial for managing her diabetes. The prospect of graduating from school at the end of this year is an accomplishment that Njeri finds almost surreal, given the tumultuous journey she has endured.
