Little Ana Veronica Ramirez Ajchomajay has been sponsored through the
Mother Infant Sponsorship since she was in her mother’s belly. Her mother Elena was so happy about having a sponsor for her baby that named her after the sponsor’s name, Anne Groombridge from England. They started communicating through letters and even though they live miles apart, last April 11th they met for the first time!!! After the visit Anne said that “It was an awesome day in the truest sense”. You can see it for yourselves just looking at their smiles!!!
