Hello friends and beloved partners!
Once again I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support! Because of you, Star of Hope has managed to thrive, even amidst the pandemic challenges.
The physical security of the children has been enhanced through the building of a brick perimeter wall around the property, but sadly, some of the children are battling recurring medical challenges – the flu and a few have gotten malaria. Happily, we still remain COVID free. Your sustained support allows us to get appropriate treatment for the children and all have pulled through. Most are back in class and we expect the others to follow soon.
Your generosity provides for a quality education and nourishing meals, which are so important to the children and their struggling families. We are forever grateful for your help. Thank YOU!
