Well done Margaret and thank you for all your hard work and dedication!

The Compassion classroom project has now been completed, providing much needed new facilities and creating opportunities for scores more children from the Paspanga community to receive invaluable education, food, health care and Christian love. Thanks to all who have been involved in helping to raise funds for this project – your money has already made a HUGE difference to the lives of so many precious kids.
