NEWSLETTER FROM JEAN

September 2019 – News from the Wysome family

We are so lucky with the friends we meet who volunteer with us. This is a letter from a family we got to know in March of this year, we and they thoroughly enjoyed our time together. I hope you enjoy their letter.

July 2019 – Denys Hakizimana

I hope you will enjoy this latest newsletter about Denys who attended the first tailoring class in 2008 – the letter itself is a collaboration between two of our students who wrote it and took the photographs (I may be becoming redundant !!). It is a lovely success story and reflects a part of the project which I do not often talk about.

March 2019 – News from Ora

Dear Friends, Little did I know what would come of that foundation I laid 11 years ago. It was an act of hope, not knowing where it would take us. It gives me the greatest of pleasure to attach this newsletter written by Christian Ora, one of our students who was one of the first students I chose to be sponsored. This letter shows the amazing success which courage and determination can bring. I am so very sure that you realise that these things would not be happening without your continued support. Our sponsorship programme is our lifeblood, if you are interested in sponsoring a child please let us know.

January 2019

Hello everyone, Well I finally got things together and so now I attach our January news for you, I hope you enjoy it – so very sorry for the delay. I know also that some of our newsletters from 2018 have yet to be posted on the website – on with
that shortly I hope! For those who have been wondering how we are faring given the terrible news of major flooding in some other African countries like Malawi and Mozambique I can assure you that we are well. That said, along with other countries in the world, we are experiencing changing weather patterns, especially the prolonged and extremely heavy rains. You will remember that last year our boundary wall collapsed as a result of that, but this year we seem to have been spared any major problems.
