Monicia Finds Hope with Good Friend

04/08/2013 10:35


Good Friend is a program we support in Congo where we send representatives to homes where orphaned children are living with extended family. This program helps them to have the food and medicine and counseling they need. Some of these children have one parent alive and are just living in really harsh conditions because of the lack of money available to the family. Good Friend delivers food weekly to these children and then our representative, Brice, makes house calls to make sure they are receiving the food and are getting healthier. Here is a note we received in our email from our representative with Good Friend: "Monicia is 9 years old. She was 3 when her Dad passed away. Her Mom remarried and went to a village where there is not a school. An aunt on her father's side of the family asked for her to join with Good Friend so that she could have the privilege of school. This aunt does not have a husband and has other children. The conditions are awful in the home." Please keep Monicia in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for helping us to support her. Remember that a percentage of purchase is used towards helping support children like her. To find out more about what we do in Africa, Click Here.
