Mckenzie writes:

“Hi! My name is Mack and I live in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. My family sponsors ten kids through Children International, and we love to connect with them through visits or special gifts.

I have been sponsoring Mercy since 2008 when she was only seven years old.  Mercy is a bright and enthusiastic little girl with an amazing smile that I get to see in each Children International photo of her.  I have enjoyed receiving letters from her mother about her daughter’s progress in school and her helpfulness at home.  Mercy loves to draw pictures and to play with her many friends.  Also, her mother reports that Mercy likes to show off the photographs sent by her sponsor to anybody who will stop and look.  Awww!

Mercy’s father is deceased and her family exists on the mere $39 per month that her mother earns by selling dried fish and beans in the local marketplace.  This fundraiser has been set up to help purchase a set of bunk beds with bedding and other necessities for this sweet little nine year old girl.  Mercy and her young brother and sisters currently sleep on mats on the concrete floor of their family’s two room home.  They have no electricity or running water.  I believe that the children will be more comfortable and will get a better night’s rest with a couple of beds to share. Because space is limited in their small home, bunk beds are the most realistic option.

Thank you so much for helping this precious little girl and her family benefit from one small human comfort!”
