Meet Amina. Amina just graduated from cosmetology school.
This young mother came to our partner, Wakisa Ministries, after first trying to get an abortion. When she went to the hospital for the abortion, the doctor directed her to first go to Wakisa and talk with the counselors. There she learned they would help support her through her pregnancy, provide health care, teach her how to be a mother, and then also assist her with vocational training. Amina has sickle cell and has previously been told she could never finish school. She now has the skills to be a great mother. We are thrilled to be able to provide all of the mama kits for the young ladies at Wakisa. Your donations to Mercy for Mamas helped to give hope and a future to this young mom and her baby.
