We met little Samira over a year ago when we noticed a very skinny girl in the community. Our doctor confirmed that she was suffering from malnutrition and dysentery.
Her 'grandmother' explained how she had found Samira in a bin when she was trash collecting late one night. She couldn't look the other way and so took her home. Samira was just a few months old.
The conditions where they live are severe with no clean water and very dirty. Grandmother is a good woman but is old and very poor. She barely has enough food for herself, let alone Samira.
For £25/month we are able to provide food, medicine, better shelter and blankets for them. When Samira is old enough we will pay for her to go to school.
