The next family that we visited was a mentally handicapped mom, dad (who was at work) and a baby, who was pretty sick.
That baby didn’t like me one.little.bit LOL Mama did, though, isn’t she pretty!
Another family was a mom of 4. The mom, is in the center. She is standing in front of a wood “table” with a giant bucket on top. The bucket is filled with water and there is a spout, on the bottom, where rubber hoses are connected to it. The houses are placed on the ground, in each row of vegetables. That is the new irrigation system to help get water to all the plants and to be successful in their crops. The more grown, the more to eat, the more to sell for money for things that they may need. What a wonderful thing these people are being taught.
This pretty, young lady, is a single mom with a child about 2, maybe. She is HIV positive and she never stops working. Her garden was beautiful! Her house was clean, there was a calf, that looked really good and a ton of hay stock piled for it. She had saved the manure patties for fertilizer and wow…can this girl work circles around me. Did you see her garden? WOW. Thanks to Hope Arising for supplying her with money to buy her calf and begin her garden to help feed her son.
Our day didn’t stop, here. Once we were done looking at all the wonderful things that Hope Arising is doing and loving on all the children that came our way…we were off, again, to Woudneh’s mom and dad’s house. Not too sure what to expect there…..it shall be in the next post!
