30 Days of Faith: Day 28

· · · Day 28: Filipina, Jehan, 13, has been forcibly displaced inside the Philippines several times since the age of three. “I would like to go to school, but we don’t have any money,” she says. Jehan’s father works as a labourer while her mother is a street vendor. “My parent’s income is just enough for our food. When they go to work, I take care of my brother. I like to play, but I don’t have time for that. I also do the laundry and prepare iftar during Ramadan. I don’t like to complain, because I know Allah has a better plan for us.”
