Sumaya says that being sponsored by Mark & Trisha Oppeau is the best thing that has ever happened to her in her life. It feels great to be sponsored because she now gets a better education; she doesn’t miss out on class lessons like she used to at her previous school. It is through this sponsorship program that she got Mark as a sponsor and that now provides her with, school fees, a uniform, socks and shoes she didn’t have before. She used to go to school barefoot but now she has school shoes. All thanks to Mark, she is always looking smart in her shoes, socks and a school uniform.
Sumaya says that her mother doesn’t worry much about sending her to school now since her school fee is always paid in time. She now only has to work hard for Sumaya’s siblings.
Sumaya said that she prays for Mark and his family every day to have a long happy life and they also thank Mark for that beautiful giving heart that he has.
