I got my first message from the woman I am sponsoring through Women for Women. They said that because of mail times and translator times that our messages would probably pass in the mail. I’ve written to her a few times.

I got a postcard with a handwritten message. There was a typed translation stapled to it.

My name is Muniba and I live in Budozelje near Vares with my husband and son. Both my husband and I are ill and our son is unemployed. Thank you a lot for your donation, because it’ll come in useful for buying medicine. I’m looking forward to your letter.
