The shy smile on this six year old has nothing to do with the water filter donated to her family by Finding Freedom through Friendship. Febe is too young to realize the benefits of being able to have, for the first time, water free of bacteria.
Febe is smiling because a her photo is being taken. She has never seen a picture of herself, and she certainly is not used to being the center of attention. She and her mother most likely still wonder how they became so fortunate to have been selected to become part of our circle of concern.
We hope to see her smile change to one of confidence, as we continue to care for this family and educate Febe, so that at some point in her future, she can purchase her own water filter. And shoes!
