Rather than receiving presents we would be delighted with a donation to the work of Stand by Me. We have experienced what they do first hand, with the joy that comes from sponsoring children and with Esther having visited many of the children in Myanmar, Nepal and Ethiopia. We can't recommend enough how much this charity changes people's lives; caring for and giving children a brighter future.
Donations for Paul and Esther's wedding will help provide care, support and a life-changing education for children living in poverty in Ethiopia. Through the Bethany School and the Abdi Academy, Stand by Me provides over 900 of the poorest children with a quality education, daily food, healthcare, clothing, shoes and family support.
