So Wonderful to read stories with caring/sharing in other parts of this world! They have so little yet their hearts are open to help others that are even less fortunate then themselves! It is the ones who have the least that truly have the most of what really matters in a world where compassion/caring/love is the utmost value. Please Brian give us a chipin link for us to be able to donate to help Forgotten Voices. Thanks.

Having met some of the wonderful Sudanese refugees, I am so in awe of their kindness, caring and sense of forgiveness after all the hardships they've been through. The African nations are undergoing such transformation and much of the change is hard and many times violent. It is good to see such selfless people dedicating their lives to helping the situation. Wishing them all health, strength and peace.
