Dear friends of Warm Hearts of Africa;
A very Happy New Year to you and your families.  It is at this time that we reflect on our
many blessings from the year that was and make our resolutions for 2016.  For Warm
Hearts of Africa, 2015 was a milestone year.  We celebrated our 10th anniversary and
held 4 events.  It is hard to believe that Mike and I founded Warm Hearts back in 2006. 
All that we have accomplished these past 10 years is a result of your generosity and so
we send you a heart- felt thank you for your support over the years and in particular, in
2015, where our 4 separate events raised over $16,000.        .

The funds raised in 2015 will support the James Vatistas bursary fund for 25 needy girls
and 25 needy boys who attend the Maeve-Ila Academy (formerly St Pauls) in Bangwe,
Malawi.  This region of Malawi is extremely impoverished and has been devastated by
the HIV/AIDS epidemic.  Mike and I last visited in September of 2014 for the grand
opening of Maeve-Ila Academy.
