celebrating

Hi Felix,

Thank you for sharing the successes of Voiceless Children, as well as providing us with your beautiful photographs that celebrate the important work you're doing.

It always helps to see beautiful images like these - of smiling faces and the women with their beautifully colored dresses and smiles receiving the heifers - to understand the true impact your organization is making there. I hope that you will continue to share with us!

Warm regards,
Jade
