Thanks for stopping Novelie from going hungry

On behalf of Novelie, "Thank you!"
On behalf of Novelie, "Thank you!"

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year* of food for Novelie.

Novelie is six years old. After her mom died she was left in the care of a young aunt. Novelie's aunt couldn't afford to care for her and so she brought her to the HTDC orphanage. 

Novelie’s aunt left her at the orphanage as she hoped she would have a better future there, but with so many other hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day. 

Without healthy food, Novelie was listless. She didn’t smile or play much.

But now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with her! Novelie smiles and giggles and shows a lot of spirit.

Because of you, Novelie now enjoys three nutritious meals every day - and we’ll be able to keep providing the food she needs to stay healthy and keep on growing.

Novelie has a bright future because you gave. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Novelie. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Novelie and all her friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage right here on GlobalGiving. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email We’d love to hear from you!  

Thanks again for making Novelie’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

*Donations to this project will cover Novelie’s share of the food costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
