In some of my free time, I visited orphanages in the area and met a boy named Innocent who was affected by polio and cerebral malaria. He was in need of funding to get the support he needed from a school like Gabriella and now I am lucky enough to get to sponsor him :)
The people and this country have made me realize what I want to do with my life. I cannot imagine not returning this summer and just the thought of being with all the children there makes me ecstatic!!!! I am especially excited to see how Innocent is doing at Gabriella as well. I have been planning my return trip with 2 girls who I met while there last year and could not be more excited to share this experience again with them. We are hoping to stay for 2 months this time around so that we can have time to do as much volunteering as possible with the kids we have grown to love so much!
I cannot deny the fact that I love these kids and want to maintain the relationships I began a year ago. I would love the opportunity to watch them grow up to have happy, productive lives!
Your donation would help fund airfare and housing and any extras will go towards school supplies and shoes for the kids!
Please consider donating so I can make a difference in these kiddo's lives just like they have already in mine. I cannot put into words how much these kids mean to me!
