December 2008 Featured Donor – Tung-Kuen Li

Tung-Kuen Li has been a regular supporter of Aura’s House projects over the past several months. This consistency was a relief in hard economic times and through the traditionally slow summer vacation season.

“I am so honored being asked to be Featured Donor for the December Aura’s House newsletter.   I really don’t know how I deserve this honor.

My friends call me TK.  I am a Network Support Analyst with a bank in New York City.  I have three sponsored children (Yamiris, 10 years old, from Colombia; Luz Dary, 14 years old, also from Colombia; and Maria Gabriela, 9 years old, from Ecuador) through Children International. 

In my spare time, I volunteer in computer tutoring projects throughNew York Cares .  I have been a sponsor since January of 2007.  Being able to make the lives of my sponsored children easier, and to see the smiles on their faces is the best reward.  I also donate to help families featured in Children International’s blog, and to individuals or families who need help through Modestneeds.org.  I also make micro-loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries through Kiva.org, so that they can make better lives for themselves and their families.

I discovered Aura’s House through Children International’s website.  Aura’s House is such a wonderful website that combines the power of many individuals together to help the needy families.  I donate to Aura’s House because I can be sure that the funds will directly benefit the individuals or families who need help, and I see the actual difference made.  With the devotion of Kristen Palana, Anastasia Yecke, Mike Epler, Christina Sidoti, Heather LaBonte, and so many dedicated volunteers of Aura’s House, we can make a difference.”

    i have read with a lot of encouragement about how you have and are still helping children in less developed countries.please continue and GOD will richly bless you. here in KENYA[EAST AFRICA], due to extreme poverty and climate change resulting in flooding people especially the rural folk have been forced to live very bad conditions and sometimes under trees. i also am forced to deal with homelessness since i run a home for orphans and lee fortunate children and they have suffered dearly after these home was burnt down by vigilante gangs during the election violence here in 2007.we have not recovered and are still looking for well wishers to help in rebuilding.so incase you find time to visit this country i , on behalf of great hope community feeding and learners center welcomes you. alternatively ,please get us people to sponsor constructions of classes, latrines,dormitories clothing and books for these children.may you be blessed
