Clementine sends a letter....

We received a new letter from Clementine, one of the sisters we sponsor through Women for Women International. Since all of you who buy our products play a part in sponsoring our ladies, I thought you might enjoy reading the letter.

"Dear Sister,

I wanted to truly thank you for your good support I received it.

I'm married since 1985, together we have 9 children among which 6 are girls. The first born is 21, just completed secondary school. Second born is 18 years old, he was in senior school but his daddy is in prison, it was tricky to keep him in school. The third is 16 years, just completed primary 6. Then the other four are still in primary school. Two haven't started yet.

I'm 42 years old my husband is 46 years old. It has been 2 1/2 years since he went into prison, we depend on cultivation plus a few domestic animals we have. I'm so glad to have your support.

Allow me to stop here until next time, goodbye for now.

Yours, K. Clementine"

Thanks to all of you for creating joy and good in the world!
