Welcome Sagitaria!

A few weeks ago, I asked Compassion for another correspondent child, to fill the void that Meena left when her project graduated from needing Compassion's help.

Since the day I asked for another child, I have been checking my account every afternoon and evening to see if a new child was there.

Today, she finally arrived.

Meet adorable Sagitaria (She's a sagittarius! I'm assuming that's where her name came from)

Isn't she adorable?!

Name: Sagitaria
Age: 8
Birthday: December 2nd 
Country: Indonesia
Grade in School: 3rd
Performance in School: Average
Family Duties: Gathering Firewood, Making Beds, Cleaning
Hobbies: Dolls, Reading, Jumping Rope
Guardians: Mother and Father (They are married) Her father is a fisherman and her mother is unemployed.

Your sponsored child lives in the coastal community of Hessa Air Genting, home to approximately 4,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, cardboard walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic group is Batak Toba.

The regional diet consists of bananas, fish and rice. Common health problems in this area include diarrhea and skin diseases. Most adults in Hessa Air Genting work on plantations and earn the equivalent of $42 per month. This community needs security, libraries and increased incomes.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Theresia Student Center to provide your sponsored child with Bible studies, medical checkups, nutritious food, sports, character building education, national child day celebrations and reading and writing classes. The center staff will also provide meetings and seminars for the parents or guardians of your sponsored child.
