HELENA: S364-VEH

September 2020-S364-VEH-Thanks to the generous donation from Susan Knaus, Helena has been re-enrolled into school for the 2020/2021 school year. She is in the 1st grade this year and still wants to be a pastor when she grows up. She continues to live with her aunt.

2019:  Meet Helena, who has been generously sponsored by Susan Knaus. She is 10 years old and is in the K2 this year. Helena lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her aunt.  After the death of Helena’s father 3 years ago, her mother took off with her new boyfriend and left Helena with the neighbors. When her aunt found out that Helena has been abandoned by her mother, Helena’s father’s sister went to get her to take care of her. The aunt is a single mother of 3 children of her own and she cannot afford to send Helena to school.  Her interests are visiting her sisters and she hopes to be a pastor when she grows up.
