The children have come out of the malnutrition that they have suffered from the past few years living off of any hand out food they can get on the streets of Bamako. Now with 3 warm meals a day, and vitamin supplements, they are enjoying a healthy and balance diet, conducive to their physical and intellectual growth. Additionally, they’ve learned the importance of proper diet, and are practicing such rules as food pyramide into their daily routine.
On Jun 15th, the Globalgiving Foundation is hosting a "Bonus Day" where all gifts are matched by 30%. To make your giving go even further, one of our donors will contribute 100% match to all donations to our project on this day. This means that your gift of $100 make on 15 Jun, will turn into $260. Please make your gift go even further by giving to our project on 15 Jun!!!!!
The children have adjusted and learned the proper dietary habits. In addition to the three meals, the children are now receiving vitamins to supplement their diet. This has led to much less medical complications with the children. They have also learned to share: if at the beginning, the children were fighting for the meals, and running away with the pot that is used to serve all, they now know that they will always have meals to their satisfaction and have learned to share with other. The highlight of the end of the year was the Christmas Party that we organized for the children. In mid December when shown a picture of Santa Claus and asked what it was, they responded that Santa Claus was "an alien midget". A week later, the same children were singing Christmas Carol in French and English at their Christmas Party.
