I am extremely happy being able to write this Newsletter in place of Lotti Latrous. My name is Valérie Keller; for the last 13 years I have been working as Head of the Office of the Foundation Lotti Latrous. This summer I spent 3 weeks at my own expense at the Center of Hope at Grand Bassam and am allowed to report to you about the wonderful time I spent there.

Dear Sponsors

While I am writing this, the cold wind is taking away the feeling of spring. I know this as for the time being, I am in Switzerland; a country where the government is well disposed to its citizens. A country where the infrastructure function and in various fields the technology makes life easier; may it be for the running water and toilets. Hopefully these makes it possible for all to live a good, healthy and long life.

Greetings from Davila
I sincerely hope that everything is going well with you. I myself am very happy being able to write to you once again and to provide you some good news. Davila, who was brought to us almost six months ago being fatally ill and about whom I wrote in the last quarterly NewsLetter, is feeling better - which is a miracle. She is happy as she can now spend days and nights  with the other kids.. She has her small bed with those of the older kids and if everything goes well we can start her schooling soon.
