Update from the little orphans’ Annie

The following excerpt recently came to us from our ministry partner, Annie Chikhwaza, founder of Kondanani—a wonderful orphanage in Malawi, one of the world’s poorest countries:

The wonderful environment orphaned children experience at Kondonani stands in stark contrast to the poverty and hunger that surrounds them.
The wonderful environment orphaned children experience at Kondonani stands in stark contrast to the poverty and hunger that surrounds them.

Our children have no idea what “being needy” means, they went into the village and asked the teacher if the mud hut the people live in was a toilet.

We are now giving our children veggies to give to the children in the village to try and give them an understanding that there are children who do not have enough food; they get only one meal a day and do not have enough clothes to wear, so we have to help them.

They always ask us why the village children have holes in their clothes. What is so amazing is that should our children have stayed in the village they would be in the same situation or be dead because of malnutrition.

Thanks to you, our sponsors, our children’s needs are met.
