Ebia

Ebia joined Kachema Musuma CBO in 2010 after Hands at Work came to teach about the Great Commission and how God commands us to care for the vulnerable. Even before Hands at Work came to share about this, she had it in her heart to care for the vulnerable, those who were orphans. Even in her own house, she gave to children. Hands at Work’s vision was aligned with what was already in her heart. Ebia would love to be prayed for. She is a widow, staying with children and grandchildren. She pray for God to give her the strength to cope as she cares for these children and for peace of mind.
