The rent for the house lies at $160 a month, water costs are at over $3000 for a year. David makes sure that the kids get three meals a day and tries to buy as much fruit and veggies as possible, still the kids’ diet is very basic with not many proteins.
The older kids have to walk a track of almost an hour plus taking two busses every day to get to school.
Tabasamu has a set of swings, but other than that and a few coloring in books and reading books, there's a massive shortage of kids toys.
The "Felista" and "Gift" are the two women who help David every day, wash the kids clothes, cook for the kids and mainly raise the orphan children. Both are unpaid. They are able to live at Tabasamu but neither receive any salary.
These are just a few of many things David needs any financial support for that he can get. Donations will go towards a more balanced diet, invested in new toys, school materials, towards rent, water and electricity bill. David's big dream is to have enough donations that he is able to buy a van so he can drive the kids to school. His biggest goal is to expand Tabasamu, so he can offer shelter to even more orphans and street kids and can build a school within his own walls where he can teach the kids.
I have been met with absolute kindness, generosity, happiness, many smiles and alot of dancing and music since I've been at Tabasamu. David deserves any help he can get, no matter if it's just $5 .. that means he can buy fruit for a week. Finding a person like David in a world full of war and hatred is something very special so let's support him as good as we can.
