I was so thrilled to receive a hand written response…..
How do you do? I am your sponsored child. My name is XXXXX XXX, I live with my parents some 114km north west of Addis Ababa. It is a small rural district called Yaya Guldale. I have a brother called YYYY two years old who live with me. We live in our own house, the roof is covered by grass where as the wall is built from wood and mud. We use stream water for drinking and kerosene lamp for light. Finally, I would be very glad if you send me a post card that shows your place.
Your sponsored child
Written by the project worker as told by the child.
I simply love the idea of being able to communicate and knowing how he/she is doing. This is a follow up of my earlier post entitled ‘Charity Begins at Home’ if your interested to know more on how to sponsor a child.
