Help for Siah Tamba

Siah Tamba

One day in the 1990s, during the civil war in Liberia, Siah Tamba was inside her house when she heard gunshots. Suddenly an agonizing pain tore through her leg. A stray bullet! The damage was severe; her leg needed to be amputated.

Today Siah and her four children struggle to survive. They used to live in a tumbledown house that let in the rain. But Hope-for-the-Handicapped has made their lives a little brighter. With funds from CAM supporters, the program provided them with building materials, and some brothers from the local church built the family a strong, mud brick house.

“I am very thankful for my new house where I can stay dry and care for my children,” Siah says with a happy smile.
