Minna is 8 years old and in 3rd grade. When she was 2 years old, her mother had heart problems and passed away. A year later, her father, who was a fisherman, was killed by his cousin. After her parent’s death, she and her 2 siblings went to live with their grandmother. Their grandmother earns money by selling food in the morning and occasionally sweets. This income is not enough to care for 3 children. So, Minna’s brother had to go to a children’s shelter. Minna’s older sister is studying in the village school and is very smart. She participates in competitions and wins sometimes. Minna and her sister both attend the children’s club in the village. Minna can’t remember her parents. She and her sister often talk about how sad is feels to not have parents. Their grandmother, who looks after them, is very kind and cares for them. But she is facing financial problems because her income is not enough to meet her granddaughters needs. Your support will help Minna have a better future.
