Project Description

Fatouma’s beloved husband, Ibrahim, passed away on December 21. He had an aggressive cancer that spread more rapidly than anyone expected. To be sure, it was quite a shock to our sister Fatouma and her family. Fatouma has been a long-time member of our Seeds of Exchange community. The funds raised paid for the funeral and her living expenses during her four months of mourning. Fundraiser Information.
