the intrepid travelers


These are my friends Christine (l) and Francina (r). They are about nine years old. They came from a village that is about 200 - 300 kilometers from Goma, all by themselves, to have surgery to fix their club feet. They are at Heal Africa alone for 3 months to recovery from the surgery. They have about a month to go before they can go home. We've gotten to be friends and they say hello every day. They looked at all of my pictures from America and decided they needed a picture of their own.
