We found land in a hopeless place.

Since we last shared with you the story of our struggles to keep VVOCF alive, we've made some great headway. While we aren't quite ready to break ground, we're excited to announce that we've found land in Zonkizizwe! And we'll be moving VVOCF to the new site soon.

In the meantime, we've still got a lot of work to do. Take a look at the pictures, and you'll notice that most of the land is covered in "bush." So we'll be working hard to clear and level the land over the next few weeks. Then, when the time is right, we will move VVOCF's facilities to the new location.

We're so excited about this move and we thank you so much for making it happen. Your gifts are helping the relocation take place, and we look forward to keeping you engaged and sharing notes and photos as we clear the land, level it off, and relocate VVOCF to its new home.

Congratulations on raising the funds to make a difference and save an orphan care center in South Africa. You are amazing!
