In 2009 East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club hosted Gift of Life patient Ugochi Christopher and her mother Jenny from Nigeria. Her welfare has been on our minds since the kidnappings and senseless slaughter in the country recently. We have been able to get in touch with an uncle in Atlanta- only surface mail & no phone or internet in their village- to find that all is well and for now the family is safe. The Christophers live in the south of Nigeria while the violence is in the north.
Ugochi is thriving and has grown tall and healthy. She is an outstanding student and become one of the leaders in her school. We are delighted to make a contact with them, however slow, but will now keep up through her uncle. Your thoughts and prayers for them please.
