A true success story
“Dear Sera, the WOH Team and all Volunteers/supporters,
My children and I want to thank you for this opportunity that you are giving us to have a better life and stay happy in Canada. We are convinced that God always has been with us throughout our lives, and this is a sample that tells me that God has accompanied us, and that He also lives in our house and in the house of all the people who as you generous and interestedly help us.
I want to tell you something, when you asked me what to do I want or what would I like to do? Is difficult for me to think, you know why? Because nobody ever in my life asked me that. But I’m sure my greatest wish is to see my children healthy and happy. Also my children have requested to me to tell you in this letter that they feel happy that you are helping us, they are truly surprised that there exist people like you who dedicate yourselves to help those who need it. Again thanks for everything and that God blesses you.
Sincerely: Malinaye, Marco, Oscar and Brenda.”
