Freedom's Letter

In the Community

Dear Topsy Supporters,

I am sure you have thought many times about the children that you are supporting through Topsy –
what they may be thinking and feeling.

Today I have the privilege of sharing with you a letter, written by one of them. This child came forward
and sent this letter through his Caregiver to one of our caring Social Workers,
Heleen.

We were all so touched and warmed by his words. It is unbelievable that amongst all of the
hardship that these children suffer, there is time for counting blessings.

Here is the letter from a boy whose first name is Freedom:

Freedom’s Letter:

“I would dearly love to thank you personally.

All in all I want to thank you for the food, blankets, school uniform
etc and for I thank you for being a family to me and good friends I can trust.

I hope you will not stop with me, doing good things to people like me, I
hope Jesus offers you lots and lots of strength to help you help those who can’t
help themselves.

Lots of Love from Me

Yours Sincerely

Freedom."

When we at Topsy hear things like this from the people we help, it is beyond encouraging – it is a powerfully heart-warming reminder that we are doing something genuinely worthwhile.

You are part of this and so we extend the thanks to you. It is due to
your donations alone, that we can go out into our most impoverished rural communities,
with something more to offer than sympathy.

Warm Regards

Helen MacKenzie
