Kim Chi has just been sponsored
Kim Chi has just been sponsored; now we know that she will have an education thanks to her new sponsors.
Kim Chi lives in a small township about an hour from where I live in central Vietnam. Her parents are physically disabled. This means it is hard for both of them to get around easily or work easily. Her father sells lottery tickets earning about $2-3 a day in good weather, and her mother has the occasional work is a relatives banh xeo (sizzling pancake) cafe. As they are disabled they do receive a small disability allowance; for them it is $18 a month.
Clearly it is impossible to put two children through school on their income and so we are thrilled that we can help Kim Chi to receive an education.
