Thank you very much and other members of HUGS for all the support you have rendered to these vulnerable children, to make them what they are and useful Citizen in the society. I have a story to tell you which the Dad of DericK told me, as Derick is his first born child, after knowing that this child is deaf and dumb, he was scared to death and decided not to marry and have another child because of this tragedy. He knew that Derick is useless in life, but he started getting a bit of hope when he had the Sister helped by HUGS are opening a school of special needs, he just came to try, but now is a very happy man to see what Derick is doing
The first classroom at the Asili Girls School should be open in January 2015 and there is great progress on the sanitary block. More news later about this.
