Food and Self-Reliance for AIDS Orphans

Four new containers of ATMIT on their way

Four new containers, each containing 800 50-pound bags of ATMIT (easily digestible oat porridge, full of minerals and vitamins) have left our hands and are on their way to Bulawayo, for the orphan families.  The containers should be arriving in Zimbabwe in a month or so and the food will be distributed by our friends from Zimbabwe Orphans Through Extended Hands (ZOE) to the kids. 

It makes me very happy to know that even in this tough economy, we have kept our work and have sent the food these kids so desperately need.  But, I would be remiss to say that i hasn't been hard and that we haven't had to fight for every penny it cost to get those containers out.  There is never a question in my mind that we need to fulfill our promises and that our plans should always move forward, no matter how much we have to beg, plead, and move mountains.  Thank God, each child is receiving what we said we'd send and they are able to take their medicine because they have food in their bellies.

Thanks to each of you for giving generously.  Thank you for telling others about our kids and about our work, too!

On behalf of the kids,
