For Ramatou Malon Hassan, a widow and mother of twelve, the last four years have been a constant struggle. But today, Ramatou is beaming.
“I am thanking God and thanking you for the help,” she says with a wide smile.
In mid-May, Ramatou received enough millet, black eyed peas, and oil to last her family for a month. It was the second monthly ration she received through a food assistance project implemented by Samaritan’s Purse Niger.
The project, which is supported by Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the Christian & Missionary Alliance, is helping vulnerable families in the Madaoua region of Niger get through a particularly difficult year.
After her husband died in 2008, Ramatou was forced to sell some of the family’s land to survive. Since then, things have been going in a downward spiral.
This year, Ramatou only harvested about 15 kilograms of millet—enough for only a couple months for her family. Read the full story, by clicking
