Sisterhood - Zariahs Journey



Hello Sisters,

In February I put out a call of help for a little girl named Zariah. She had travelled all the way to Christchurch, New Zealand with her (pregnant) Mum and Dad to receive treatment for Leukaemia.

Mum and Dad were having to sleep in the ward with her while she was being treated because the Earthquakes in Christchurch had severely limited the hospitals facilities.

We heard about this opportunity from the blog, Hazel Loves Design. And we decided to help. How could we not?

We gathered our resources together and sent Zariah and her family picture books, felts, colouring in pencils and books, decorations for her room, batches of home baking, delicious drink sachets, chocolate and more chocolate, and $200 for the family to spend on whatever they wanted (we suggested a date, but understand that bills still need to be payed!).

We dropped the parcels off at their door, seeking no recognition or thanks, and we sat back knowing that our jobs had been done.

For one moment, smiles, because of us. Isn't that the greatest reward?

Thankfully their little family were able to be moved into a Ronald McDonald home, a great space for families to stay close to the hospital while their loved ones are being looked after.

Unfortunately I was not able to get any photos of the gifts you sent Zariah and her family but I want to THANK YOU for hearing the call of a little family in New Zealand and most of all for responding. If you sent a gift, prayed a special prayer or thought a special thought, this small victory is for you.

I am happy to tell you that this little family is back home and thriving. Zariah is still continuing her treatment and is slowly losing her hair and has returned to Kindy. The Mama is due to give birth in July.

Love you.
