Sister Berta Sailer (1/4, Opinion, “As I See It: You can help KC’s poor children”) is truly a voice for the voiceless. I have known and worked with Sister Berta for many years. She is tenacious and dogged about speaking out for her children and their families.
Yes, Kansas City, there is extreme poverty in our community, and it affects many of our children. Get involved and see the impact of poverty on our children. This economic downturn will touch all of our lives, but it will ravage our poor children and their families. You can make a difference!
May God continue to bless Sister Berta, her staff, all associated with Operation Breakthrough and the many people in our community who work on behalf of the poor. They are good for the children.
