On a daily basis, the reminders of Ebola are everywhere you look in Liberia. A Samaritan’s Purse blog post recently shared the story of Jenneh, an Ebola survivor … and now the primary care giver to 15 children who were orphaned by the epidemic.
But she’s not alone. Samaritan’s Purse is still actively helping Jenneh and others throughout the region.
“Provided with training on urban gardening from Samaritan’s Purse, Jenneh and her sister are now using part of her mother’s land as a garden to grow cabbage, okra, corn, and hot pepper, all to assist her in providing for her large family.
“‘The program has really helped me,’ she said. ‘The children can eat! So the garden has helped reduce the burden for food. The children also help me in the garden. I pass on the knowledge that has been given to me and teach it to them as well.’”
And be sure to see how Samaritan’s Purse was used by God to help during the Ebola epidemic in the new movie FACING DARKNESS, which will be in theaters as a one-night event on Thursday, March 30.
