Besides supporting jobs and the New Life Family Center programs, New Life Threads likes to support special projects. Africa New Life suggested we give a portion of sales to child-led homes and last Easter we were able to bless six families thanks to your support. We were recently able to secure some photos and a report from Rwanda. Since you helped, please take a moment to hear their stories…
Namahoro Vestine is in grade six at Kigali infants’ primary school. She is a total orphan who has lost both of her parents. She stays with her two elder sisters who never had a chance to go to school at all. “Thank you for the food, she says. “May God bless you all.”
Mutesi Peace and Kemirembe Alice live by themselves as their mother died and the father has abandoned the family. They say, “Thank you so much for thinking about us and sending a gift to us. We are happy for the food.”
Ruth is a young girl who is HIV positive. She is an orphan who has lost both parents. She was abused sexually after the death of her parents. She stays with her one brother. “Ruth appreciates a lot for the Easter gift you sent to her.”
Ndayisaba Fred lost both his parents when he was still young. He stays with a friend. “Fred is thankful for the gift money you sent to him. He enjoyed his Easter.”
Celestin, Danny and Dickson are three boys who live together and are total orphans.
They are not brothers, but they came from different places and formed one family.
Isindiyitesi Sharon is the oldest in her family. She lost her father but the mother is living with HIV and is “ever sick due to medicine she takes every day and no food to eat because they live in a refugee camp of Kigali.”
Your support of New Life Threads made this impact possible. Africa New Life says “First and foremost, thank you so much for the gift you sent to these poor children. They were all very happy to receive the support and their Easter was really great.” Thank you!
