A Message from South Sudan.....

I received this message this morning from one of my recipients who is currently a peacekeeper in South Sudan. 

"I thought you might like to see the laundry bag in action - this is my 'sista' who is one of the IDPs (internally displaced person) who does my laundry.  A lovely lady whose children are in Kenya, and who just had another baby a few weeks ago (was pregnant with twins but one didn't make it) - the laundry work they pick up is only a few US dollars for us but makes a huge difference for the women who would otherwise have no income.  Apparently I'm "her best friend".

To me it is a reminder that we often forget just how lucky we are to be born in this beautiful country. 

Till next time............I am off to count my blessings.

  1. An aspect of life over there that I was totally unaware of.
    That rainbow laundry bag would surely gladden the heart of anyone using it.
    Thank you for sharing the photo and the story.
