I am so pleased, my dad was selling a present card for a flight ( he is a small plane pilot ) and the lady started talking about how she will be off to Africa in 10 days time to visit her orphanage that she and a friend have been sponsoring.
lond story short, he tells me, I call her and she is very, very happy to receive pad kits for her girls, so much so she is stunned.

she has 12 girls and 12 boys but not many of the girls have their menses yet and already it has been a major financial hurdle to keep them in pads
