September 2021: Thanks to the generous donation from Lori Fischer Hall, Florence has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She was promoted to the 3rd grade this year and still wants to be a seamstress when she grows up. She continues to live with her grandfather.
September 2020: Meet Florence, who has been generously sponsored by Lori Fischer Hall. She is 9 years old and is in the 2nd grade this year. She lives in Gbeleyee, Liberia with her grandfather. She was abandoned by both parents. Her father is an alcoholic. Due to his excessive drinking and being physically and mentally abusive towards the wife and children, Florence’s mother left the children at her grandfather’s home and moved out of town for her safety. Her interests are playing outside with friends and she hopes to be a seamstress when she grows up.
