Lots of love from South Africa
So much has happened since we last connected. To start, your support continues to help our partners at VVOCF provide three meals to children each week. Yet with the demands for increased support and services from the center, we recently worked with Nomusa and the team on the ground at VVOCF to start providing five meals each week—that’s one meal every weekday for each of the 40–60 kids who come to the center.
While this is undoubtedly good news, what’s sad is that VVOCF recently learned it must take a year of from receiving support from the Global Fund for Children. That’s a loss of $7,000—a vital source in helping VVOCF reach its new goals. Without this support, VVOCF will struggle to keep its doors open three days a week, let alone five.
Given your commitment to this issue and your passion for seeing children thrive, we’re asking you to make a special gift to our project. Without your support, VVOCF will have to cut its feeding program, maybe even going down to one or two days per week. Not only is this bad for the children and youth who rely on this service, but it may discourage them from coming to the center altogether. Yet with your help, we can stay the course, keep the doors open five days a week and give our children good health.
Please make a gift to our project today. Your support makes a difference.
With gratitude and humility,
"I really like singing."
"I really like to play with toys."
"I like to pray."
"I like to play ball at the center."
