Banjey from Liberia spent the last eighteen years of widowhood without family. Her children left the area during Liberia’s civil war and never returned. This seventy-year-old widow survives by the mercy of her neighbors.

The generosity of CAM supporters also shows mercy to Banjey by enabling her to receive a thirty-five-pound food parcel. Thank you for your compassion that blesses Banjey and thousands of other widows, widowers, and abandoned wives in impoverished countries.
