Weaving the bonds of friendship

centre-afrique-1     Republic of Central Africa,  Henriette.Z

I am a small farmer, and I live in a section where people have limited means. I got to know a widow, who is a little older than me, and destitute. We struck up a friendship.

Seeing how miserable she was, I gave her a part of my field, so she may cultivate and sell some foodstuffs, which would enable her to  get out of trouble and be self- reliant, like the other women in the neighbourhood.
