Supriya is the new little girl I’m sponsoring through CNEWA. She just turned six two weeks ago. I didn’t know—so I’m sending her a late birthday card with the next package to India, which will leave next week.
Supriya has two brothers and a sister. Her parents are trying hard to support all of them, but like many hard-working Indian families, their wages aren’t enough to cover even the basics. My sponsorship program helps by providing Supriya with education, food, and medical care.
Supriya wants to be a doctor when she grows up—so ambitious! I also learned that she loves photography. I love it, too; my camera is one of the most important traveling essentials I have. Do you remember the pictures I took while I was in India?
I wish I had known about Supriya while I was there—maybe I would have been able to meet her. Next time, hopefully, I will.
So here’s what I’m thinking: since Supriya loves photography and collects pictures, why don’t we send her some for her birthday? I am sending her a few photos.But can some of you across the country send me pictures from your cities? You can send them right to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Something beautiful, something interesting, something that will show a little girl in India what it’s like to be in the United States…
I’ll send print-outs to Supriya with a special message from all of us. Thank you so much in advance!
