The Compassion rep asked if I would like another child to write to, and of course I said yes. So I just received the information on Banesa, who is 11 years old and from the Dominican Republic.
She is one of five children and she loves to play with dolls and to sing.
She runs errands for her parents (both of whom are employed), and fetches water. Most of my compassion children have the task of carrying water, even the tiny one, which lets us know the problem of water in third world countries, where the water source is usually polluted, but the only place where they can get water.
I look forward to getting to know Banesa over the coming months.
