2019:  Meet Lauretta, who has been generously sponsored by Big Valley Ranch. She is 9 years old and is in the 1st grade this year. Lauretta is an orphan who lives in Seclepea, Liberia with her grandmother.  She had lost both of her parents during the Ebola Epidemic.  Her interests are reading and she hopes to be a doctor when she grows up. Lauretta told our GPA representative during her interview “I want to find Ebola medicine so my grandma will not die from Ebola”.
