This young lady is our exchange daughter. She stayed with us in Michigan and graduated from Cheboyhan High school. Within 10 months of returning home her mother became very I'll and passed away. This was tragic for her entire family. Her mom developed terrible dysentery from poor drinking water. Please let's help her help others.
