As each child gets a teddy bear, the first cuddle is the most meaningful. Unless another human, the teddy cannot ever reject or deny the child. As the child hesistantly draws the bear close, a special magic happens. So often orphans suppress their need to express love because there isn't someone of their own to love. A teddy is something of their own to love. For the first time.
All thanks to you.
"I love Babu," says eight year old Aaniya (name changed). "I love him. He's mine!"
Whether the love is as much for Babu or that fact that he completely and forever belongs to Aaniya, the reality is she can and does love him with all her heart and showers him with that love.
We are going to rural Sindh this month - Sanghir and Badin - and giving orphans teddies. Please donate more and spread the word. Thank you!
