The girls are growing!

Here is a brief update from the Children's guardian Stephen. I was amazed when I saw the pictures of Angela and Flavia. They have grown so much!!! It does not seem real that four years have passed since I saw these kids with my own eyes. Fortunately they appear safe and happy. I believe that their parents are looking down upon them and proud of the young women they have become.   - Lee

They are growing. I took some few "new" clothes for them. Flavia only got a few because she is taller than I expected. Angela wasn't feeling very well. She will be taken to Noah's Ark where she gets her meds. I left transport money with their caregiver.
We are grateful for all your support
I wasn't able to see the boys today. - Stephen

Maize

I realize that I should be telling you about new fun projects we are doing with fruit trees, but honestly, since the COVID-19 lockdown the markets have dried up and the economy is struggling. Most people we work with have reverted back to subsistence farming until the country stabilizes again.

They still have the fruit trees and the trees are producing lots of nutrient rich food for their families and communities. However, instead of investigating markets and new fruit varieties, everyone is focusing on maize. It is a high yield crop and the porridge and breads made from it are filling and easily stored.

When the airport reopens and things return to normal we expect the economy to rejuvenate and we will go back to focusing on exotic fruits and cash crops. Until then however, maize it is!
