Being a mother whilst living in extreme poverty bring additional challenges.
Babby lives in Sierra Leone. She is a widow and a mother of 5. After her husbands death she struggled to cope on her own. With 5 mouths to feed and educate – she had no choice but to turn to her community for support.
A community group established through our project came together to contribute toward the fees needed so Babby could bring her husband home for burial.
She has received support in setting up her own trading business so that she could gain the resources and funds need to provide for her children on her own.
Accessing resources and support is vital for mothers in the developing world.
