I got married with I was a young lady, just 16 years old. I had my firstborn with so much pain and sorrow.
I was attacked by sickness. It was in my breast. I was a disease called breast cancer. My breast was swollen, and I had wounds all over.
My child did not suckle the milk from my breast because I was sick.
“Knock, and He’ll open the door. Vanish, and He’ll make you shine like the sun. Fall, and He’ll raise you to the heavens. Become nothing, and He’ll turn you into everything.”

Thank you so much for purchasing this book. The proceeds from this book goes to help all the women who have written in the book.
You will find out from their stories that these women are extremely poor. Many of them are widows and many children are orphans.
There is a lack of food and water for these people. Some still live in grass huts that cave in once the grass rots. Children drop out of school because they lack uniforms, socks, or shoes, and the school fees are not paid.
Some families have resorted to eating tree leaves and roots as they can’t buy any food, and they are having trouble growing food due to their lack of rain and resources.
As you read their stories, you will find that although they are dealing with unimaginable difficulties and heartbreak, they do what they can to stay positive and support their families.
