Kamaro dreamed of going to school but he had to work for his food!

When Kamaro turned thirteen, he had to fend for himself.  His mother was dead and his father very ill.

You never had the qualifying mark, but by God’s grace you are allowed to run in the marathon!”

The difference a LOVING HOME and MATERIAL SUPPORT makes for orphaned children: a father shares his thoughts.

In a letter to Canadian donors, Andrew Obara writes,
