The Little Bird Headstone Appeal

When I got back home, I decided to put this post on my facebook wall ...
Friends, Can you help?
While I was in Belarus, Leaves-of Hope Director, Val Cousins took us to the grave of a little girl
she had befriended.
Whilst Val was back in the UK, this little girl got appendicitis and was left ill.
It became peritonitis and she died.
When Val returned to visit her, her body had been left on a rubbish tip!
Val found her and fought for
a pauper's grave for the child.
This week, we cleared the overgrown grave because, if it is not looked after,
then her body will be removed
and the space allocated to someone else!
In order to stop this from happening,
we need to raise the money to buy a permanent gravestone for the child as she currently has a temporary wooden cross.
Val is finding out the cost
of a tombstone this week.
At the end of our trip, we left all our leftover cash with her to start the fund raising for the head stone, but I am hoping that you would also like to help Leaves of Hope to give this child the dignity she deserves in her own grave.
If you would like to help, please inbox me and I will give you the details of how you can make a donation. Thank you
