“After the accident, life was really hard. The doctors decided
to amputate my leg just above my knee, and I then spent 10 months
in hospital recovering. After I was discharged from hospital I had
to travel 2km every morning to go to the market, carrying the
vegetables on my head and walking with crutches. My children
were too young to be able to help and my husband had died
several years before. People laughed at me and did not help me
at all. Then I heard about Neema Crafts and came in to ask about
work. I started on the tailoring course, which I loved as I have
been able to learn many new skills."
Artillia was the first one at Neema to get a starter home on her land. She lives with her adult son and orphaned grandchild.
