Ana Lema of Ecuador Receives Gifts
Your donations for Ana Lema and her family were a huge benefit. Thanks to your generosity, over $500 was raised and Ana’s mother was able to pay for a tomb niche and the funeral expenses associated with the passing of Ana’s father.
In addition, Children International purchased a wonderful selection of tailoring and dressmaking supplies which Ana will use in her dressmaking course. Click on the gallery link below to see the supplies.
When Ana’s mother was informed of the gift to pay off the funeral debt, she expressed her thanks by saying “We all love you and we are sure that although my husband is no longer here with us, we still have him sending us this guardian angel to take care of us.” Ana was equally thankful in her words to Children International’s staff stating, “I promise that I will do my best to complete my studies so that you can be proud of me. We will never forget you because you are special people in our lives.”
Thank you so much for giving this family so much and providing them a chance to begin a new life without their father. I know they are grateful to you all.
The project for Ana Lema is complete. If you would still like to help other needy children go to school, we have the current India Tuition Project which is close to 75% complete. Just $24.50 will send a child to school for a year. For many, that’s TWICE their family’s monthly income. Learn more.
