A Woman With an Abundance of Hope

A story of restoration and hope

Before the local church stepped in, Ukume Boltana’s life looked bleak.

After her husband died, his family cast her out with no inheritance and not a penny to her name. With unpredictable work, she struggled to feed and provide for her son for nearly two decades. Even paying the miniscule rent for a one room house was difficult.

The only asset she owned was a 6 x 20 metre plot of land she had bought many years ago. She didn’t allow herself to consider the idea of constructing a house on the land; it seemed like an utterly impossible dream.

But through a donor-supported Tearfund CCT initiative called the Nehemiah Project, a local church was awakened and visited Ukume. In response to the biblical mandate to care for widows and orphans (James 1:27), they saw Ukume’s living condition and supported her with grain, edible oil, and cash. Moreover, they promised to help build her a house on the land she owned. “While I’m not a member of their church, they came to help my problem,” Ukume shared.
