Two of my sponsored girls share my birthdate. Our birthday(s) came around in September, and today I received their thank-you letters. Eight-year-old Zuleyma told me all that she received with our gift:
Milk, sugar, rice, beans, cereal, eggs, oatmeal, oil, macaroni, and tomato sauces.
That was it. Nothing, apparently, for her hair, her skin, no clothes or new shoes.
Have I mentioned that these kids live in poverty? If you would like to help such a child, please let me know. I will send photos of the children whose packets I now have or will receive, soon; or you can go search for the child of your choice on Compassion's website.
