What a smile! (Celina)

I know I’m terribly far behind in my blog, but I am working on catching up. Please bear with me. I’m new to this and haven’t kept up with it like I would have liked to.

The next correspondence kiddo I was assigned was Celina. Look at this smile!

Do you see that in her eyes? That is HOPE for sure! My heart melted when I got her picture. Such a precious kiddo! Celina is a 13 year old girl from near Mombasa, Kenya. She likes to sing and recite poems. She has many chores including washing clothes, cleaning, and helping in the kitchen. She lives with her mother and her father is no longer alive. Her mother is sometimes employed as a casual laborer making approximately 30 US dollars a month. Their community needs improved sanitation, AIDS prevention, and employment opportunities.

Her smile already encourages me and I cannot wait to get to know this precious one!
