Good news for our children: holidays have just begun!
Many orphans are going to go back home and see and visit their parents and relatives – they can’t wait! However, the youngest ones who need to be looked after 24/7 are going to stay with nuns and “mamas” for their security.
The reception centers will be up and fully running by September immediately after the end of the rainy season. This period is rich in fruit and vegetables – nothing better than that for our centres, where nuns and “mamas” can more easily make up for food shortages likely to happened in the dry season.
We’ve already starting raising new funds to provide our children and babies at Tanguieta Hospital in Zou and Atacora regions with milk powder and food supplies. As soon as a sufficient amount is reached, it’ll be distributed to our three centres. A monitoring and distributing trip has been already scheduled in November. Crossed fingers!
Thanks a lot for your awesome support – these children, our local and Italian operators and us are really grateful for your thoughtful help! Much must still be done to fight malnutrition in Benin and save innocents babies from hunger, but any effort is worthy if made together!
