We have reached our funding goal but Rivers of Hope continues to need our help! Your donations have continued to provide Christopher, who has sickle-cell anemia, with $300 a month for his health maintenance, food, and clothing until he can join his forever family. We also support other children with child-specific donations for well-child care. We continue to supply medical supplies, food, clothing, bottles and other needed items. The Red Thread Promise does not ship goods to the orphanage because customs fees are steep (often exceeding the value of the items sent!), and we prefer to spend money locally in order to support the economy, but we have found that a few suitcases of goods carried in can make a big difference to the orphanage.
