We met Esther Wema yesterday during one of our community outreaches with Mr. Tony in Katanga. She is a 15 year old single mother staying in a one room house together with her two weeks old baby.
Prior to giving birth, Esther was deserted by her parents and also the father of the baby rejected her and sent her off, telling her to abort because he wasn't in position to look after the baby.
Being left on her own, Esther met a good samaritan who sheltered her until she gave birth, but also ran out of resources to continue looking after her.
Right now, her rent is due, the baby is sick and also Esther is sick since she didn't get proper medical attention after giving birth. Esther’s feeding is also poor since she goes days without a proper meal yet she's breastfeeding.
$50 can provide food and milk for Esther and her baby for a month.
