International Justice Mission: Grace's Story

When Grace’s husband passed away, relatives tried to steal her home — she became a victim of property grabbing. Her home and her land was her entire livelihood, the only way she could provide for her five children. Without anyone to defend her rights, Grace started to lose hope. Then Grace met IJM, and everything changed. “My old life has ended and now a new one is beginning.”

At Urbana I went to a seminar put on by this organization and also talked to one of their representatives later in the day. They do some amazing work.
