Foma Hope! Hello Hope!

Foma hope! Hello Hope!

This picture has had such an impact on my vision for maternal health care and my vision to return back to the Muslim world as a midwife.

Why foma hope?

Foma is the fulfulde word for hello and the picture above is a hausa baby who we named Hope. We couldn't say her hausa name properly so we asked if we could give her an english name.

If you look up the word hope, you find that hope means; to cherish, to desire something and it also mean that you wait expectantly for something to happen

Romans 15:13 May God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
