"God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises,
leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.”
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#1 The first painting had to be about the pandemic! Covid 19 affected all of us, some worse than others, but it’s much harder on the most vulnerable where food and supplies are scarce! Food is life changing for kids that have very little!
You can help, donate to my art for charity series.
This little girl, Ireen walked 3 to 4 times a day collecting water in Malawi. It’s unsafe and dirty water, that makes them sick and many times she doesn’t have time to go to school from walking so far multiple times a day!
Now she has clean water close to home from a borehole drilled by World Vision. Health, Education and safety are some of the benefits from not walking so far to get water for this little girl and other kids in her village.

I was surprised to find out that this is the president's sponsor child. He chose Edgar from a wall full of photos, not knowing that it was the president of World Vision!
This one didn’t turn out as close to the picture like I would of wanted, the World Vision photo is a stunningly beautiful photo and my painting wouldn’t do it justice! I added some flowers for Mother’s Day.Photo credit World Vision /Lily Mary Rodrigues Bangladesh
Hunger is on the rise and I can’t even imagine being a mom and feeding little ones when there is hardly any food.
If you want to help,
So many children around the world are traumatized by domestic violence, emotional abuse, traffickers and the pandemic. Heck, we are all traumatized by the pandemic, but poverty makes things harder for them! They are home with their abusers more, there may not be enough food on the table or clean water and lack of medical care makes things more difficult. Children need support, both emotionally and spiritually when they have gone through something traumatic in their lives.
Sponsoring a child helps the child with basic needs but also looks after their whole wellbeing with emotional and spiritual support.

The last piece of this series is a little boy from the Democratic Republic of Congo proudly showing his soccer ball that he made himself out of plastic bags and found strings from mosquito nets in his village. Celestin, who is 12 years old took two hours to complete this ball. How’s that for the #Olympic #spirit!
