Karen Ekal is currently sponsored by Kristine Hubbard from Lindstrom, MN. Thank you Kristine Hubbard.

She is six years old and has dreams of becoming a doctor when she grows up. She has multiple brothers and sisters, two of whom are already living in the orphanage. Her favorite food is spaghetti, although she rarely has the chance to eat it. She lives in the slums with her mom and dad but struggles with having the basics such as food, clothing, and shelter. She also witnesses abuse quite often. Sweet Karen sat in her chair sideways during the entire interview. She wouldn't face any of us but glanced at us once in a while and snuck in a smile or two from time to time.

Built on love and hope.
