Helping a Little Girl in Need Through WHYTHO

  • There is no better feeling in the world than helping someone else who really needs it.

    With that in mind, I was thrilled to see a picture of the little girl in Kenya that I am sponsoring through the organization WHYTHO.

    While little is known about her history, the story of her future is yet to be written. However, with the combined efforts of her caretakers on the ground and the other sponsors like myself, her future will be better.

    What makes the this especially meaningful to me is that I became an orphan within weeks of being born, but I had a couple things working for me that others like this girl don't usually have.

    I was born in a social democratic country that provides most, if not all the necessities of life to its people. There is a child welfare program that includes fostering and even adopting children. While the system is certainly not perfect, it allowed me to be adopted into a family that I could call my own.

    This girl who lives in Kenya, is now a part of my family. While she may be very far away geographically, we have been brought closer through the hard work and commitment of WHYTHO, it's supporters and the common desire to help a child who is in need of it.
