This World Food Programme website features a day in the life of four African women. It gives a wonderful parallel with the four women I profiled in my last post to this blog.
Fatime Gassi's husband and child were slaughtered by Arab militia when they attacked her village in Chad
I encourage you to read these short accounts of these four women. We need to open our eyes and allow ourselves to see what the lives of others are like. When we stay busy with our own immediate concerns, we become blind to larger perspectives.
One of the women, Veronique Begimana from Burundi, says:
But without food or money it’s difficult to have hope for the future. Things don’t change very much for us. Life isn’t beautiful.
The School of St Jude in northern Tanzania serves the children of the poorest people, to provide them with quality education and give them hope for the future. Your contribution will help.
