2018: Meet Comfort Gogbay, who has been generously sponsored by Dawn Lalley. She is 11 years old and in the kindergarten2 this year. Comfort lives in Gehwee, Liberia with her parents. About a year ago, Comfort’s father’s small business was burglarized and her father was almost killed by the thieves as they attached him with a machetes in front of the family. Since then, the family have not been able to restart their business; therefore cannot afford to send their 6 children to school. Comfort hopes to be a doctor when she grows up to help her family.
