"The Seeds Have Fed and Clothed my Family"

Receiving Seeds
Receiving Seeds
"I am a mother of 6 living children, I gave birth to 8 children. The oldest child is 25 and I lost him to Ebola and I lost my 5th born to malnutrition when she was just a little over the age of 1 year. I lost my first husband in the civil war and later remarried my current husband who was a widow with 4 of his own children. My current husband is physically disabled also as a result of the civil war. Together we are raising 10 children.
I am a farmer, and I am the main bread winner for the family. I have received vegetable seeds for my small farm from the church program for women. The seeds have fed and clothed my family, I am forever grateful for the help.
The women's program has helped me get training and seeds, without this help my family is helpless. We can now help ourselves. I work in the field and my husband works at the market to sell our vegetables, the okra is very popular at the market it is our best seller. I thank you you all that are helping me and the others that are with me."

Neither program would be possible without your support. Today, GlobalGiving's 100% match of Ebola recovery donations, launched this spring, is still in effect. I hope you can spread the word to your friends, colleagues, and family about this opportunity to support life, livelihood, nutrition, and equality in Liberia, and to give a gift that goes twice as far due to the generous matching program. Thank you.
