Hawa - Nigeria

“Smiling alone cannot express how happy I am, because I have never received any help like this in my life.”

When Hawa’s village was attacked she and her family managed escape to safety, but she lost all her livestock and crops. With the help of the Nigerian Red Cross, Hawa has been able to buy seven goats, fertilizer for her farm and food to sustain her until her crops grow.

She has also been able to renovate the foundations of her home where she lives with her children.
