Sarah Henry is the Executive Director of World Connect-Kids to Kids and has partnered with Dog Meets World. Just back from El Salvador she reports:
We had a fabulous time. We were able to get Foto and the equipment into the eager hands of the Peace Corps Volunteers. This is just one of the great pictures with Foto that we took though out our journey. Foto was an incredible companion and an easy way to win the hearts and smiles of children along the way!
Can’t wait to see more pictures and stories!
Best Foto of the Week!
