“The pandemic has affected us greatly,” Hally said solemnly. “My husband and sister lost their jobs … friends have provided us with food when we did not have any to eat.”
With little hope and few options, Hally wasn’t sure how she would feed her two children. But after learning about Convoy of Hope’s Women’s Empowerment program, she joined and quickly saw her life change for the better.
“I’ll never forget that day, when I entered and saw the whole issue,” she said. In the program, Hally learned financial skills, self-worth, and vocational development. Soon, she started seeing a difference.
“I am starting with the help they gave me,” Hally said. “I have created the habit of saving.”
After starting a business of her own and putting her new-found skills to use, she helped her daughter join Convoy of Hope’s Girls’ Empowerment program.
“Little by little I start the business and little by little I can help at home,” Hally said. “In my family we have received 100% help … many times we did not have enough to eat and [Convoy of Hope] called to tell us that they brought us a bag of food. Thanks to Convoy I have been able to start my business.”
With gratitude and a new trajectory in life, Hally has grown her business, supported her family, and taught her children life-altering skills.
“I have no words to express my gratitude to the people who support us through Convoy,” she said. “It has been very helpful for me, as well as for my family. I pray to God for the people of Convoy, so that they can always help people and God bless you always.”
