COME, I’LL SHOW YOU

REBECCA’S WAY OUT OF THE DARKNESS

Rebecca Sumo has already experienced a lot: After the Ebola crisis, she lost her eyesight – and not only that. Her husband had also separated from her shortly afterwards and made off with the children. Only with the help of her brother Othello she finally managed to find orientation in her new life. But even now there are many problems which were exacerbated during the corona pandemic: Since the markets in the city are empty, Rebecca’s homemade palm oil hardly sells. So what can she live on – and how? Rebecca doesn’t want to let it get her down. She wants to look to the future with optimism.
