Today was a good day for Ella. She woke up early to help her mother with breakfast and her mother was smiling! Her mother, Anna, was feeling good for the first time in more than two weeks. She wasn't out of bed much in that time, leaving Ella and her brother to care for their home and Anna. Their little garden was also watered as the children cared for the tender plants. It's hard for us to imagine this kind of responsibility for young children, but they have been living this life for several years with no other family to turn to for help.
After having breakfast with her mother, Ella left for school with her brother. They're both feeling strong and healthy so they feel good about their studies and can easily concentrate on new material. Ella scored the highest grade in the class on her mathematics exam. With a huge smile on her face, she tells us that we helped make this all possible by accepting her into the program. We in turn thank you, our generous donors, for helping Ella and her classmates succeed. Please know that you really do make a difference in the lives of these children!
