Christine is a single mom, who lives with her 4 children in rural Rwanda. One of her children - Patrique - is sponsored by our Foundation "Mentors with Vision" and this is how we met her. Patrique's school performance is outstanding, but hampered by his living conditions.
Christine is a lovely, lovely woman, but in huge financial distress. With an income of a few dollars per month at best, she is hardly able to pay the rent and feed her children. Consequently, she moves around from home to home, always in search of a cheaper place to live. When I posted about her in November 2019 on Facebook, several of my friends volunteered to assist her financially. Together with Bosco - my local friend - we established a budget for her. If we raise € 1700 ($ 1900), we can offer her the rental fees of a house with a small garden and gas/water/light for 2 years. The garden will allow her to grow vegetables and perhaps even sell part of the harvest. Having a firm place to live is essential, as it will give her access to Governmental services which she cannot use now.
If we manage to raise € 2500 ($ 2800) we can pay for beds, mattresses, blankets and kitchen utensils. She possesses none of it.
I have never put a funding-activity in place before, but I would be thrilled if you were willing to support Christine.
