Roine has written a poem, aptly titled, “What Will Tomorrow Be?”, given the many uncertainties we live with today, from global warming to the threat of terror attacks. But his poem is about a different threat, one that people living in poverty experience day in and day out: malnutrition and starvation. Roine writes from his heart and doesn’t shy from showing how¬†desperation can spiral out of control.

Thank you, Merry, for making a donation to Namelok Junior Academy in Kisamis, Kenya. Your contribution shows that you care about the students and that you believe in them. Your interest has also given Roine this opportunity to express himself and be heard.

Lift the Lid initiated a lunch program at Namelok last year, which fed 96 students a daily nutritious meal at school. We hope to be able to continue the program this coming year. Health and nutrition are critical to life and learning.

    Roine, I applaud your bravery in writing “What Will Tomorrow Be?” As I read your work from past years, I can see how your writing continues to improve. You’ve always shown creative talent, now you also tackle tough issues with maturity and confidence.

    Hunger, theft, murder are the sad scenarios we see in our world today. I’m grateful that you and your family are helping me and Lift the Lid to stop some of the violence by feeding the hungry in body and mind.

    Keep up the writing,
