RESCUE MERCY THROUGH SPONSORSHIP
Hello, my name is Mercy.
I am a 13 year old girl in grade 7.
My birthday is February 20th.
My favorite subject in school is Reading.
In my free time I enjoy Netball.
I would love to have you sponsor me.
I live in village of Chickwela and attend school at African Vision of Hope in Chongwe, Zambia.
Mercy is an 13 year old girl from the village of Chickwela which is in Chongwe Zambia. At home Mercy’s duties include many household chores such as sweeeping, washing, and fetching water. She also has responsibilities in caring for her younger siblings and “extended” family. Mercy really enjoys learning about Reading in school and in the limited free time she has, enjoys Netball.
Daily life for Mercy and her friends is very difficult. The majority of her friends from Chickwela, her home, are not able to afford to go to public school and survive on a single small meal per day. This meal is primarily made of nshima – a staple that is made of ground corn flour boiled in water.
