“WHERE DID I GO WRONG?”

Paulina Ali Mlim was born in Turkana County in North West Kenya but moved to Bissil Location at the age of 12 years after her parents were killed due to the tribal conflicts between the Turkana community and West Pokot Community. She was employed as a house help at that age and got married to a Maasai Moran at the age of 16 years. Last year, the husband ran away and left her with a pregnancy. In June 2017, she will be 28 year’s old with 7 children who have been brought up in a small one roomed house with only a mattress, few utensils and a small heap of clothes.

Luckily, two of her children are being supported in one of the children homes by the name “Christ Care” after Tawanga women group had identified the need.

Asked to show the food stock, she had this to say, “I have never had any food stock for the last three years and this year the situation has been worsened by the drought. The food prices have escalated and all my earnings from the casual jobs is spent on food for my children’s dinner. The food I manage to get is not even enough for them, but what else can I do?”
“I really appreciate Tawanga Women group and ADRA for this food support. I am lucky to be one of the beneficiaries. I have never had such a large amount of food. This is Christmas for me.” “Right now I cannot cook, I have to look for a casual job so that I can buy some charcoal for cooking, but I thank God at least I have food.”[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1199″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1197″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/2″][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1198″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”1202″ alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][text_output]*name change to protect privacy[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” no_margin=”true” padding_top=”40px” padding_bottom=”40px” border=”none” bg_color=”#0db6b1″ class=”height-auto”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]

The network: Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (or ADRA) is the official humanitarian agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a 20-million strong community, with hundreds of thousands of churches globally and the world’s largest integrated healthcare and education network.

ADRA is a global network. ADRA offices in over 118 countries are locally registered and recognized. Each country office is registered in the country where it is established and is responsible to a local Board of Directors. As a network, ADRA implements thousands of projects, benefiting millions of people each year—regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, gender, or religious association.

Founded in 1956 as the Seventh-day Adventist Welfare Service (SAWS) and renamed ADRA in 1984, the agency has a long and successful history of providing humanitarian relief and implementing development initiatives.

By partnering with communities, organizations, and governments, the ADRA network is able to deliver culturally relevant programs, build local capability for sustainable change and improve the quality of life of millions.

The ADRA network annual program expenses total approximately US$200 million—made possible through private contributions from individuals like you, corporations, foundations, and other entities. It also obtains funding and commodities from governmental and intergovernmental organizations such as the United Nations.

ADRA does not proselytize. God’s love in ADRA’s programs is expressed when it reaches out to those in need regardless of race, gender, and political, or religious affiliation. We work in harmony with a broad array of cultures, traditions, and peoples of all faiths, respecting the human dignity of all.
