You're helping create a new place of love.

You're support is making a difference—one brick, one window, and one door at a time.

As you can see, we haven't moved in just yet. We're still installing the plumbing and getting the water systems up to code. But we're almost there. And you're the reason why!

We want to thank you again for your support. Not only are you helping us transform an undeveloped patch of land into our partner site's new home. You're also creating a place of love. Or as our partners say, "Indawo Yothando."

And you're investing in our children's future. Each day, children come to VVOCF hungry and malnourished. With your help, they are being fed and growing stronger day by day.

As we go through this transition, your support is nurturing them with pap—a local, corn meal staple fortified with much-needed vitamins and minerals. Once we get settled on the new land, VVOCF will be free from the fear of eviction. And the organization can focus on making sure that all of the children it serves grow up to reach their full potential.

Thanks again for all you do. Your gifts mean so much to all of us!
