In spite of losing her eldest son, her house and her work in the earthquake Irma (pictured) is learning to live again. Irma and her family live in a tent in Cepem camp, one of many tent cities that sprang up after the earthquake.
After the earthquake, Irma completely lost heart. How could she cope with the loss of her son let alone think about the future? Bible Society gave her a Bible.
Helped by friends, she began to read it. Although she is still grieving, she has found comfort in the Bible’s message of love and forgiveness, and hope for the future.
