Letters from Children

We love it when children send us letters after our team has delivered much needed food and supplies to their community.  It is so heart-warming to hear how much our help has made a difference in their young lives. This is the reason why Yank and Yvette Barry continue to travel the globe visiting the areas after Natural Disasters lending whatever help is needed.

Here are few of my favourite letters from some of these children:
