Message from Charlotte:
I seem like a brave person but really I'm not and the idea of traveling to Brazil alone to be part of a mission with the MORE Project is clearly out of my comfort zone. My heart is dragging me to see for myself the young girl I have been sponsoring for over a year.
Karolina Santos is eight and lives in the slums outside Rio de Janeiro. The slums, called favelas, have a reputation as one of the most dangerous places in the world. However, the truth is that these communities are also warm and lively, and in recent years social projects such as the More project have been successful in providing daycare, meals, music, and a safe haven for the children.
It's an overwhelming idea that I can actually make a difference in this ocean of poverty. I hope to bring with me contributions from our wonderful church both monetary and essential items for daily living.
Bless the day with your presence.
