Hear the children’s voices

Hope St is so grateful to our sponsors, generous kiwis committed to regularly supporting children to change their lives.  And the children are grateful too!   

Hear the children’s voices in these quotes from children’s correspondence with their sponsors in 2022, hear how their lives are changing. The lovely artwork is from Daniel and Miriam in Uganda, both seven years old.
