Rosa

Friday, June 5, 2009

Today we met Rosa and her story touched us all:
Rosa lives in a squatter settlement outside Capetown and works toward feeding children. Every morning she gets up at 4 and works till 7:30 pm in order to feed 300 kids. She lives in very poor conditions and must cook in a small shack since her home burned down. Many homes burn down often due to simple candle fires and in Rosa's fire she was burned when she had to return to save her two children. Eventually, Rosa hopes to ensure that no child in Capetown has to sleep without having eaten at least one meal.

That is a great story. It makes you realize how small our problems are, and that for every problem, there are people working hard to help find a solution.
