These Children need your help, give as much as you can afford? Everything is appreciated.
“The ultimate expression of generosity is not in giving of what you have, but in giving of who you are.”
These children are urgently in need of a sponsor. £14 a month. Do you know someone who could help?
Everyday we provide a mug of nutritious porridge to 75 children in the Nursery Classes at Timbwani Primary School. It provides basic nutrition to these children some who had previously been attending school on an empty stomach. Our aim is to increase attendance at school, improve children's learning ability and health as well as to reduce the strain on families to provide for their children .
The porridge is made of maize flour, sorghum, millet and water and is enriched with sugar which gives the children energy.
The importance of this cup of porridge each day is paramount. High rates of malnutrition result from the region's immense poverty and limited education.
Attendance has increased, children are coming every day, love learning and are sick less often. The nursery teacher attributes this directly to the porridge program.
We remain grateful to Pennoweth School and Truro Nursery School and Trispen with St.Erme School who have generously continued to support this project.
The Porridge is made daily by the staff at Child of Mercy orphanage and delivered in barrels by pushbike
