Why sponsor this child?
Susmita Lama is four years old and is the eldest of two children in her family. Her father went missing in 2009. When asked about the whereabouts of her husband, Susmita's mother replied with tear-filled eyes, "My husband had drinking problems and never brought any money home. We don't know what happened to him." Susmita's mother struggles to meet the day-to-day expenses of her two children.
Susmita's mother says that life is difficult as a single mother. She is frustrated when she has nothing to feed the children; with the amount she earns, she can rarely afford to feed them properly.
Susmita is usually absent from school because she has a two-year-old sister she needs to look after while her mother is out at work. Susmita's mother desperately wants her daughter to go to school. Your sponsorship can make that happen.
