From CMMB: DOUBLE your impact on children’s lives

All your children shall be taught by the Lord; great shall be the peace of your children. ~ Isaiah 54:13

Dear Friends,

Meet Megina. She’s 5, feisty, and lives in Côtes-de-Fer, Haiti. Born without fully formed arms, she doesn’t seem to notice her disability at all. When we met her earlier this year, she was busy pulling a friend around on a makeshift sled. Her mom said, “Nothing can stop her.”

Well, almost nothing...

You see, Megina is desperate to go to school with her friends, but because of her disability the local school will not admit her – they don’t have the resources or training to meet her needs.

“It’s so hard for me to see her so sad when she watches her friends go to school and she cannot go. She becomes a different girl.”  - Megina’s mother

When children like Megina are denied the opportunity to go to school, it increases their chances of continuing to live in poverty and dying younger. Girls are often the first to be excluded.

Today, I wanted to let you know that a generous friend to the poor has offered to match your gift to children in need. That means that your love and devotion for children like Megina goes even further.

Thank you for all that you do to help alleviate the suffering of those less fortunate. It is in these actions, motivated by love, that we see God's grace here on earth. Today, more children can be given the chance to learn and experience the life-changing impact of education because of you.

On behalf of Megina, and the 91,013 children we served last year, thank you, and God bless you.
In His grace,

President and CEO
