"I am a widow and mother of eight children, four of whom have died. I no longer have any relatives. My 9 brothers and sisters are dead. This situation and the poverty have upset me. I had no energy, I couldn't work anymore. Renate, a community health worker, started coming to support me and got me into a discussion group. She continues to be close to me on a daily basis. Today I have regained my strength, I cultivate my fields and I manage to feed my children. Now I am a member of an association created by the community health workers of the TWITEHO AMAGARA project. I thank them, they saved our lives."
