Sony is bright and happy and 5 years old. You would never guess she’s an orphan with HIV. She loves to ask questions and to play with other children. The people who love and care for her describe her smile as “sparkly,” and they say she acts like the boss of the children’s home. She lives in a center supported, in part, by your donations.

You have shown her love through your generosity. How many more children will you love?
