Clicking on the button at the top right of the blog will take you through to a post at Patch of Puddles, where you can read all about the project Merry is running to sponsor children in Niger through WorldVision.
The usual sponsoring system is a substantial contribution but Merry has organised us to each contribute just one quarter of the amount needed to sponsor a child, which is much more manageable. The project to date is able to sponsor 8 children, and is aiming to get enough support to manage the ninth as well.
Thinking about the whole situation of these children and their mothers in Niger is heartbreaking, and £6 a month is a small commitment for me to make - and I have promised to do it for a year. That is all Merry asked. £6 can make such a difference for them, and for me, it is not going to break the bank - it isn't in the budget yet though!!
