Karen is so grateful for The Smith Family's help

Karen and Craig have always done everything they can for their four children. Their daughters, Lee and Hannah faced many tough health conditions with frequent hospital visits. On top of this, as parents, they felt ill equipped to help their children succeed at school as they had limited education qualifications and experience.

“As parents our hearts were breaking because we couldn’t give all our children the support they needed,” Karen said.

“We just wanted to see our kids go above and beyond with their education and happiness.”

They were connected with The Smith Family and the children were all matched with sponsors. Watch this video as Karen explains how this support changed their lives.
