Justine is ninety years old. She got married at the young age of sixteen in 1975. Her husband passed away in 1995 of natural causes. However, during the course of their marriage, Justine was not able to bear children. She is a committed Christian and hard-working woman. Justine worked with the Young Women’s Christian Organization (YWCA) for over 10 years as a cook and shop attendant. She eventually had to retire due to age and circumstances. Justine has a passion for cooking and approached a nearby private elementary school to help in the kitchen. She was offered a job washing dishes and served there, playing her role faithfully for almost 10 years. During her time at the school, she was operated for Hernia and got severely injured on left leg after falling down when leaving church. Currently, her lower limbs are very weak and she can hardly walk. She moves around the house by the aid of a walker. Justine has no known relatives, but has friends who take care of her. She believes that God is in full control of her condition and was overjoyed when she found out there were some generous people willing to offer her support without having visited her. “May the almighty God abundantly bless them,” she said.
