*Special thanks to generous repeat donor, Brooke Duncan for her $92 donation that helped finish this emergency project.

Abraham, whose family was recently helped last year with a Medical and Income Generation Project, needed immediate emergency assistance in order to attend school this February of 2013. He needed the following to be able to attend school: school uniforms, shoes, backpack, books and school lunches.

Abraham (9)

Abraham’s immediate family

Abraham’s mother is struggling to educate her children. Abraham’s older brother has already quit school and is working to help his mother with their store.  More than anything, Abraham’s sponsor, Inga, wants him to be able continue his education and go to school.  He is very intelligent and is an excellent student. With such limited income, there is not even enough money to feed the children so that in Abraham’s health report last year, it appeared that he was severely malnourished and was enrolled in Children International’s feeding program.

Abraham is the sponsored child of Aura’s House Partner, Inga Katelari of Cyprus.

Inga writes:

Abraham is my first sponsored child whom I’ve been sponsoring for 4 years now. He lives with 6 siblings and his mother who is raising them on her own on a mere $105 per month. Abraham is 9 years old and the youngest child in the family. He’s attending 4th grade of primary school. According to the report, his educational progress is ‘Advanced’ and his overall grades are ‘Excellent’. Abraham is a bright and intelligent boy who likes to study and wants to become a doctor when he grows up. Abraham also likes playing soccer. His favorite soccer team is Real Espana de Honduras.

This year, Abraham really needs help to attend school since his mother can’t buy what is needed like school uniforms, shoes, backpack, books and school lunches. He is starting the classes (hopefully, if we can fund this project quickly) in February 2013. I hope you can help us get all Abraham needs to attend school this year.

Thanking you in advance for your consideration.

Best wishes,
Inga
