Dear Sponsors,
I study at Mateus Sansão Mutemba school, grade 8th (2020), and would like to inform you that I am in good health.
In March we stopped with classes until today studying at home and online with the brochures and tests that we fetch at school. Only in October the classes with exam, 10th and 12th, started going to school 2 days a week. I would like everything to change and return to normal as before.
I wish that you are all in good health, and thank you for your help.
