Sudane had emergency heart surgery. Her family was able to contribute 2000 and Sudane must pay the remainder. She has been a host mother and friend to Peace Corps Volunteers in Barda, Azerbaijan since 2005. She taught us how to stay warm in the cold of winter, clean the inches of mud from our boots, how to hand wash and hang clothes, and kept our company with grace and encouragement throughout our service. She is caretaker of her mother and two adopted cats. She has a big heart but it needs our help.
