“I would like to thank the sponsors. Our house has been repaired and we don’t get wet from the rains anymore. We are really thankful.” —Wilma, Michaela’s mother
Over the past six weeks, we have shared with you Michaela’s story and stories of other children in Compassion’s programs who have benefitted from having new houses, classrooms and multi-purpose halls built or fixed thanks to generous donations made by supporters around the world.
There is still a great need for many children across the world in Compassion’s programs who would benefit from this life-changing assistance. We put out the call and our generous supporters responded to the Buildings for Kids appeal.
We would like to say a huge thank you—together we raised over $1.1 million to help children just like Michaela find safety and security within their homes and schools.
To show you just how your support has made a tangible difference, Michaela and her family now have a house—an even better one than they were living in before Typhoon Haiyan struck.
“I am thankful that our house is done now,” says Michaela.
Together, we have been able to make a difference to the lives of children and families living in poverty. Thank you!
