Visiting Cashofia in Davao, September 2014 (pictures)

On Saturday September 27, 2014, I visited 9-year-old Cashofia and her family on behalf of her sponsors Paul and Clarisse McGregor. I sponsored her from 2011 to the end of 2013.

In their house. They have no curtains or windows, so when it rains they get very wet.






The neighbourhood






The stack of letters we exchanged over the three years I sponsored her. I write once a month, often two pages and photos.

Cely is Cashofia's caseworker, and is a former sponsored child herself! I love stories like that :)


This is the river they live next to, thus why their house is elevated a couple of metres off the ground

Thanks to the McGregor's monetary gift we were able to go shopping.




The family's achievements displayed on the wall of their home

Posing at the checkout :)

The house, up nice and high to avoid flooding















Climbing the ladder to their house



With the Project staff, a friendly, generous bunch of people who made me feel very welcome

Ah, simple pleasures :)
