You were always on my mind…

Sarah’s blog 2/4/21

I have been thinking a great deal about these children (and all the others like them). I can’t imagine what it must be like, as a parent, not to be able to feed my children. As a parent, not to be able to give my children clothes or shoes. Sometimes they may have been preloved clothes, and sometimes we had to watch the pennies, but we’ve always had enough.

What must it be like not to have enough? Not to have blankets for your children, not to have food to give them every day, not to have soap to wash your children or their clothes, not to have hope that things are going to improve. What must that do to your mental health? These two families are suffering.

It is my responsibility to try to match them with sponsors. The children supported by The Foundation are always on my mind. They live in such extreme poverty. They need a helping hand. It costs £25 per month to sponsor a child. Two friends could sponsor a child to split the cost if needed. Or could you provide a food parcel for one of these families? How about making a monthly donation to our feeding programme? £5 per month donation will provide 52 meals for 4 children each year.

Elinah and her three cousins, and Mwiza and his three sisters are all suffering from malnutrition. Only Mwiza, who is disabled, has a sponsor. Please can you join our team of sponsors. 52 children are sponsored already…can you make that 53? 54? 55? Thanks for reading and if you’ve more questions then just ask. Sarah x
