There are 15 orphaned kids in the area near the orphanage where Christie volunteers, who needed a home and the best outcome for these kids was to put them with families. 15 poor families came forward offering to take the children in as a foster situation. The foster parents, who are responsible to raise them as their children, are poor themselves.
With now extra mouths to feed on top of their own there is a weekly welfare program for these families, providing them with enough rice each week to feed all in their households plus giving the children new uniforms and money for schooling.
Some of the things that they require are immunisation, money for schooling and uniforms, rice money etc.
This will be our project for our cycling trip.
