A friend invited some neighbors and friends over last minute for a Vietnamese meal that we jointly prepared.
The result is 4 children are in school for two years; that small event has made a difference!
Here are the girls in need of educational support and their stories to see how a simple and small event can change the lives of children and their families.
Her father left her and her mother when she was a baby. She lives with her grandmother who can't afford to educate her. Her mother can't as well as she has remarried and has two children as well as a husband who has limited employment opportunities due to not having hearing or speech. This help is needed to get her through school.
Her dad had a motorbike accident resulting in brain injury. Although they borrowed for major brain surgery, it was not successful. Dad no longer works and mum is working to support the two of them and the three children. One sister has just had a tumor removed from her hand increasing the family debt. Mum is very stressed and just can't manage their education costs so this support for them is very needed.
Both her parents have poor health and recently they went into debt for dad to have major surgery. They can no longer afford to educate their three children without this help.
A small event can change lives! Thank you Greg, your family, neighbors and friends for changing the lives of four families!
