available it is the problem of food being in the
wrong place and at a price the poorest cannot
afford.

Esther in KENYA
The fear is gone. I can now comfortably take
care of my family. I have achieved a lot in a
short time even though I am a widow, because of
the compassionate assistance of Africa
Brotherhood Church and The Sharing Way. I thank
God for them all.

There is much to discuss as these women think
about expanding their business to better support
their families.

schools and colleges.
