Elizabeth safely delivered her baby, Giddy Michael.

“I hope to invest in a better business to support our big family, and for God to bless my husband with a stable job to cater for us all,” shares Elizabeth.

“She named her baby Giddy Michael,” reports our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance. “She is now able to move freely and attend to her daily activities without feeling any discomfort. She is glad to feel alive and able to bake, and make chapatis for pupils to provide for her family, siblings, mother-in-law and her parents.”

Elizabeth lives with her mother-in-law and husband. “She bakes and sells chapatis to pupils during break time and lunch hours. Her husband is a primary school teacher and works on his farm during weekends.
