DOB Dec 1, 2000
Came under Tumaini care, early 2012.
Neema came to Tumaini on a full time basis in early 2012 after our attempts at assisting her in an outreach capacity failed. Neema, upon arriving at Tumaini so seriously malnourished, weighed the same as our seven year olds. Naturally thin (we call her “twiga”, or giraffe in Kiswahili) she was still frighteningly thin and her grandmother (Neema was orphaned as a young child) was simply too poor to provide the nourishment required. Today she thrives and is an active, if not precocious young lady in 5th grade.
