Sometimes people in need come across your path. Every winter I travel to Africa to get away from cold winters and find new ideas for my novels. And where possible, I help with humanitarian projects. For the past couple of years I've been supporting a young teenager in her studies and this year I met her mother.
Let me introduce you to Redempta. She's a beautiful 40 year old Rwandan mother of four children, abandoned by her husband. Two years ago her twelve year old daughter Amandine became sick from a tumor on her spine and ended up in a wheel chair. Redempta had to sell her import business to pay medical bills.
They live in a primitive house with no running water.
