Help for Halima

16 April 2009

Eight year-old Ibrahim Eymoy is bedridden and requires constant medication. His mother Halima is a widow and most of her time is taken up in caring for him, making it hard for her to earn enough to support her six-strong family. The family can afford to eat only one meal a day and live in a small straw hut. They have no electricity and water has to be bought and collected from a kiosk which is 1 km from their home. They cannot always afford to buy water at all.

Life was easier when Ibrahim’s father was alive. “We used to eat meat every other day,” says Halima.
