4. School Uniform, Books and Occasional Gifts
Helping poor families purchase the essentials for school can be a life-changer. It can be the difference between a childhood spent on the streets and an education followed by a skilled job.
A few checks on the children during the school year by volunteers and a Christmas gift usually act as sufficient encouragement for them to stay in school; they are generally surprised that someone else cares.
Annual Cost: Books & Uniform per child = $20 for a whole year. [Can you help them?]
5. Food Hampers To Poor Families
The hamper we give may be stretched to last a family of three or four, for weeks! Poverty is often hidden, photographs can deceive! (December 2017)
Annual Cost: Food Hamper (50 Meals) or 50kg bag of rice = $50. Can you help them?
