The AFKC board of directors have chosen to sponsor a deserving local French-speaking family living in Kansas City, MO, originally from Central African Republic, who are in need of assistance this holiday season. Jacqueline lost her husband during violent civil strife in her country and fled with her two children. After months in a camp, their name was pulled in a lottery system allowing her and her children to settle in the United States. They were sent to Kansas City. Jacqueline, who speaks primarily only French was shot in her shoulders and in her stomach shortly after moving to Kansas City during a home invasion in the middle of the night. Their family has a 10-year old son in need of surgery. Jacqueline works full-time making $8.40 sewing American Flags. Please help us assist this family with providing some of the basic items needed for a holiday dinner as well as some of the things her child both needs and wants.
