I have today been with two of the "godmothers" of Calheta (Surama and Cristina Marques) to hand them out the cards that came from Simone Neuza and Artemisa for them.
I took the opportunity to take Cristina Marques' photo, as I hadn't yet had the possibility to and thank her once more for together with her sister-in-law Manuela Reduto having taken the decision to help Artemisa when a few months back I was told that this girl was in need.

I have also been with Lurdes who has informed me that her son Luis and daughter-in-law will be sending a packet to Cape Verde for Eunice's birthday next 24th of April, together with something for Kevin whose school fees will also be under their responsibility.
and a sticker book for Kevin (Right).
The latest piece of news being that a colleague of mine (Felizardo) upon having heard that a young lady from Calheta (Elisabeth) who is attending Law school in Assomada needed a laptop gave me his word that he would make it possible for me to take one with me next September for her.
Despite the fact that I don't travel to Cape Verde as often as I would like to (flying there is not that cheap) I know they know we all care and worry about them ...
