Hi,

Thank you for your continued support on The School Fund. My year has been very tough. We have had trouble at home during this period due to lack of income but we have been receiving some food from Wema which has really helped us. COVID 19 really hit my family hard and I am really glad that I am going back to school where most of my needs are catered for. I shall work very hard to get my family out of this situation.

Lavender
Hi Lavender, I hope you are having a wonderful school year and that you are learning lots of interesting things. Both of my daughters love school, so we all hope you do as well.
