Abigail was bitten by a scorpion at the end of her school year. She was in the “sick bush” (a traditional herbal treatment place located in remote villages) when we arrived in her town for updates. Scorpions and other crawly, poisonous insects are normal occurrences in our rural, tropical environments. Traditional healers have a lot of success in treating such bites. The good news is Abigail successfully completed the school year and is promoted to 3rd grade class. We look forward to catching up with her next school year. Sponsored by: Kimberly Lindas
Thanks to the generous donation from Mandy Varda, Abigail has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She was promoted to the 2nd grade this year and still wants to be a nurse when she grows up. She continues to live with her aunt.
Meet Abigail, who has been generously sponsored by an Anonymous donor (Mohamad). She is 9 years old and is in the 1st grade this year. She lives in Zorgowee, Liberia with her aunt. Her mother died during childbirth and her aunt took her in even though she has 7 of her own children. Her aunt is poor and unable to afford to send her to school. Her interests are helping people and she hopes to be a nurse when she grows up.
