Just 14 years old and has never gone to school. Her parents died when she was 9 years old. She is Sister, friend and sole carer to her two younger sisters and Brother.
She works as a casual laborer, and has to find work, so she and her younger dependents can eat. they live in a mud hut which needs repair. There are many like Mary here in remote villages throughout Kaduna and Kebbe state Nigeria. My Passion in life is to give as many children like Mary the Opportunity to gain education, training in tailoring and other skills. Also to empower her and her siblings to live healthy ad productive lives.
These children have inspired and motivated me to continue with the Mission, even though I face health issues. God has Extended my days to continue his work among the poor.
Please Pray for her and family. Also remember me and Philadelphia Mission, who are struggling through this world recession to increase our help.
Please Pray for Nigeria. communication is almost zero. fighting is now spreading throughout Mary,s village and our other villages. But I am not alone in this mission. I have good precious friends here on RB. Some Pray, and donate.Others encourage and this si so precious to me and Philadelphia Mission Charity. God Bless all of you.
