how my money was spent

last year i posted a pic of augustine, the girl from chad that we sponsor. i got sent an update on how she's doing last week. apparently the money that we've been sending has enabled her to be immunised against tetanus and meningitis, and she's been given tablets for worms. she's not old enough to go to school yet, so it hasnt bought her any books or pencils or a school uniform. i guess that's why they sent me a photo of her wearing this

my guess is that she made it herself in a factory down the road...or track, i guess. matt thinks they should have spent the money buying her a longer broom handle.

she doesnt look happy, does she? and she's not wearing the necklace i sent her which makes me wonder if she even got it.
