She is a provider. She is a protector. She fled for her life.

She is Brave.

After a flurry of attacks on their village, Zara feared not just for her life, but for the lives of her eight children. Zara and her husband had a difficult decision to make.

“The thought of leaving everything we have in the village and leaving our relatives behind, and the fear of not knowing if I can reach a safe place without being hurt or kidnapped or even killed”

The family made the life-saving choice to leave their life behind and journey, by foot, to a camp.

After traveling for three days, the family reached camp with no belongings, and nowhere to stay.

Zara and her children were forced to sleep outside without shelter.

Under the sun and in the rain with no protection from the elements, Zara feared the threats posed to her children from sleeping in the open.

The family was provided with an emergency kit, allowing Zara to provide a safe shelter for her family.

Their new shelter has helped Zara and her family feel safe, providing them a space to keep their belongings and protection from the weather.

“It has made my life so much easier.”
