    I am glad that someone is calling attention to the lives of these poor children. The pictures of the children broke my heart, they are so beautiful and innocent.

    It's a pity that the innocent girls are passing through such a hard time and unfotunately;not by their will.I understand how they feel because in our country some displaced persons have not yet been settled and they are still in the IDPs centres due to the Post Election Violence.we hope they'll pass through the hard time and may god bless you for your work and the heart of willingness to help. love, leila
