New Year message from Mariama’s village in The Gambia

Starting the New Year with a lovely message, we’ve received a heart warming update from Mariama’s family in The Gambia.

Mariama lives in Basse, a village with 112 children who live in 12 family houses.  Growing up fast, her family has updated us that dancing is her favourite past time, and that she loves music.

In the letter we received the SOS Mothers explain: “words may not be enough to express how much we feel, smiles may not be enough to show how much we appreciate your generous support…. We can be proud of our joint success and believe that through courage and hope we can achieve our goals”.

What a lovely message to receive at the beginning of the year… to fuel our determination to support many more children like Mariama to have the fair start in life they deserve.

Thank you for being part of creating a wonderful happy childhood for Mariama, the other children we support, and the new children we’ll meet in 2013!
