RECIPIENT: Rebecca – Age 65

EMPOWERED BY: Cambridge 4H Club

Meet Rebecca who has been generously sponsored by Cambridge 4H Club.  She is a 65 years old widow mother with 8 children. She lives in Sannequillie, Liberia and has never been to school.  Rebecca’s husband passed away a few years ago. Rebecca told our Girl Power Africa team that she was doing ok supporting herself until about a year ago when her daughter delivered with a disabled baby. The daughter dropped off the baby at Rebecca’s house. Since the daughter left, she has never been heard from.  Rebecca is worried about the whereabouts and safety of her daughter. However, in the main time, she must find a way to support the baby. Due to lack of funds to buy formula for the baby, Rebecca cooks extra soft rice and squeezes the water to feed the baby. Thanks to the donation from the Cambridge 4H Club, Rebecca will be selling char-coal to help support her family. Thank you for giving Rebecca a hand up.
