Nata orphan collects a blanket provided by Social and Community Development
As the temperature continues to drop, we were all so relieved that the government provided blankets to all 400 orphans in Nata.
We had planned to use donations from this website for blankets so now
we will focus our attention on jackets and shoes. This little boy lost
his mom when he was only 1 1/2 years old. He is being raised by his
aunt. His aunt wished there was a blanket for her child. It is common
for the extended family members who take in an orpahn to want
assistance with their own children. It's understandable as taking in an
orphan puts a strain on the entire family. It's a problem that social
workers face everyday.
