medical supplies and school supplies

I have the pleasure of volunteering my time over this summer in an orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania.


Every child deserves hope for a better day — a day without hunger, without pain, without neglect or abuse. But for destitute children in the slums of Tanzania, hope is slipping. LOHADA is seeking to give it back to them.

This Tanzanian-run, non-profit organization runs four centers — in Arusha, Tanzania and in rural, northern Tanzania — serving hundreds of impoverished children and their extended families, as well as elderly people exiled from their communities.

LOHADA strives to empower families by educating children and helping their guardians to break the bonds of prostitution, alcoholism and abuse; and to be a guardian to children who have no one because they have been abandoned, orphaned or abused.

I need help raising money to get these kids school supplies, medical supplies, and every day needs.  

i am blessed in my life to be able to travel over there and give of my time, so please help me raise money for what they need.

i will be staying with a host family and journaling my entire experience and sharing stories of the kids and what the money has been able to provide for them!!!!
