When I was a child, I admired adults that helped underprivileged children in the South. That is something that I would like to do too.
We have been Sherlyn’s godparents since 2008. She lives in the slums of Pandacan in the Philippines. She lives in a small rented room together with her parents, her two brothers and her younger sister.
It is very difficult for us to imagine her living conditions. But we are getting to know her through the exchange of letters. These contain school results, Christmas cards, Valentine’s Day wishes and so on. She is funny, loves spaghetti and has never seen snow in her life.
