Today, some 65 children, most orphans, ranging in age from one to sixteen, look up to Joanna as their very own Mother.
# Spare some of your precious time to teach the children. This does not mean you have be a qualified teacher. The little children have yet so much to learn. Qualified teachers, including those retired, will of course be able to make a tremendous contribution to the educational needs of the older children. Just a few hours of your time, even if only at the weekends or whenever you have the time, will be much appreciated.
# Your old clothes could be the finery our children wear.
# Even a one-eyed teddy bear could mean hours of fun and bring a smile on their faces.
# Foodstuff, particularly dry provision (grains, pulses) & preserves (pickels, jams), are easy to store… We have only two domestic refrigerators.
# Bed linen, towels and toiletries (soaps, talcum powder, washing soaps) would help them live a healthy life.
# Your love and affection… show these children you care by spending some time with them.
