This is my friend Cari.
She is amazing.
She teaches in the slums of Uganda and loves on people and cares for aids orphans and gives and gives and gives of herself.
(I stole the picture from my friend Lydia, who went over to visit this summer.)
Cari has been going to Uganda for as long as I have known her (has it been 8 years?!), and a few years ago moved there as permanently as a non-citizen can.
She will kill me for posting this.
However, I would love for you to read about her current struggle.
And if you feel so led, consider making a donation to help lighten the load in one area (finances) so that she can focus her strength and emotion on other areas (providing care and love).
Just click on the big red "donate" button and select either "Sanyu" or "Uganda School".
If you feel really led, you can sign on to permanently sponsor a child for $35 a month, which helps with school fees, uniforms, shoes, school supplies, books, at least 2 meals a day, and help with medical care.
Thanks a bunch.
