Hello sister,

 

How is the school looking with the new improvements? 

 

We have doctors that are coming from the states that want to perform a medical mission for the Ati village. What are your thoughts? Would they participate? What's needed the most in terms of assistance and meds? I'm sure they don't have medical insurance so this could be an opportunity for them to get assistance. 

Thoughts? My family(all 50) is anxious to assist. 

 

Love to all. 

 

Blessings, 

 

Grace

 

Hi sister Grace, 

 

That's good news! That would be great! Just let me know in advance the exact date so I could give the schedule to the chieftain. There are some medical teams who also come to their village sometimes. They have free deworming from the government so I think more on vitamins, colds, flu, antibiotics, some have TB, for wounds, fever, etc. 

 

if you could help me also with more supply of bath soap, shampoos, toothpaste, tooth brush, deodorants, even feminine napkins. I started supplying our students especially the ones in high school. They feel at their best when they know that they don't stink and they have more confidence. Other students used to bully them and descriminate them because of their condition. 

 

For the elementary, I want that they take their vitamins here in school to make sure that they really take it. We have a feeding program also here in school with nutritious foods. As for now, only 3 times a week yet as the budget allows. For the ones in high school, I give them their snack allowance weekly but not all of them yet. That's why we need more sponsors for them.

 

Dental is good and needed. Some needs reading glasses also.

 

The school is looking great and they appreciate it very much. The light we are using now is from the solar. Sending you some pictures. 

 

 

Thanks a lot my dear! God bless us all more! I appreciate your family also!

 

 

Love,

Marissa
