  • What more can we say? Belma is THE reason we continue to use Cultural Care. I don’t know what we would do if it weren’t for Belma, her guidance, knowledge, kindness, etc. Belma is eally fantastic, such an asset for your organization. We rely on her, probably too often, to give us perspective on what our expectations should be and what our au pair’s expectations should be. I think she has helped us to ease into being a host family with minimal issues. Thanks Belma.- Laurie Z. – Maplewood, NJ

  • Dear Belma, thank you for being such a nice LCC. It is not usual to be soo nice like you are! The meetings are always fun and you are really trying hard to make them fun! You are dealing in the Au pairs behalf which is just great!My Hostparents told me that you did a very good job in matching me with them: THANK YOU SO MUCH! You really did a GREAT JOB. I love my Hostfamily so much that I think my 9 month Extension is too short to stay with them, eventhough 12 month would be too short either! You are reachable every minute and it is just cool to have you on Facebook- there we can see what Miss Belma is doing while she´s a mum, a friend, and just a normal GIRL 😉 Thanks so much to be part of your group!!!! Have a nice week! Love Sarah :-********** –  Sarah – Au Pair from Germany
