Field Visit

The boys

This was my first visit to Little Hearts and the children certainly stole my heart. My son and I spent some few days with them in January '08. Please read Meredith Landis' update from last August for more detailed information. As the children get older and they are growing every day, the need for a second floor is more urgent. The are literally outgrowing the space they currently have! The children are well cared for and loved. Even though many of them have suffered so much ... they have lost their parents to AIDS, violence often witnessing that directly, they are happy and they also look after each other. The children are also interfaith ... there are Hindus, Muslims and Christians in the mix. We loved Little Hearts and the children. Thank you all who have given so generously.

    Dani It's so great to hear that by doing so little, i can help so much in the lives of young children. I love hearing updates about the projects, because it reminds me that i can be a helping hand in other parts of the world even if i cannot be there myself
