Milk please, x3

Nothing is as cute as babies in baby product advertisements. Their cute, chubby faces proclaim “I love life and I’m thriving, don’t you want to snuggle me?!” We are pleased to have some of these in our infant milk program too, like Otilia. Otiria was born a month premature, to mom so sick we didn’t expect her to live. They lived in a mud hut with the granny and had very little food to eat. The granny sold some of their precious and scarce corn to pay transport fare to bring … Read More

The Library is Open!

We are so pleased to announce that today we celebrated the official opening of our school’s library in Mozambique. We are so thankful to those who have joined hands with us-generous and hard working people-to help make this possible at last! Much preparation went into place before the big event and I couldn’t help but snap this shot of our head brick layer and “capitão” blowing up balloons so we could decorate. Everyone’s hearts were in this! Local area VIP’s shared in the joyous event and did the honor of … Read More
