LEARNING RESPONSIBILTY THE TOUGH WAY
TAMACINA, age 14, is the young lady on the far right in the cooking pan photo. She has 4 siblings, a deceased mother, and a crippled father whom she cares for. All the children in this family work hard by fetching water, firewood, and keeping their mud hut area clean.
Since there is no way this little girl and her siblings can go to school and farm for food, they receive a weekly food allocation from us.

THANKS TO YOUR LOVE GIFTS, these 5 children just received new clothes made at our mission’s clothing maker, Master Seamstress, Atumany.
MAKING DOLLS FOR CHRISTMAS!
Atumany, Master Seamtress, making 20 dolls for our younger girls as Christmas presents.
Our little girls much prefer the durable, soft, rag dolls made by Atumany, over the fragile plastic ones available at stores. These dolls get to ride on the little girl’s backs, have tea, and play all sorts of games that are suitable for tough dolls only.
YOUR LOVE GIFTS AT WORK FOR CHRISTMAS!
NATIONAL INSPECTORS SPEAK ENCOURAGING WORDS TO OUR FOSTER MOTHERS
On Tuesday this week, 2 National Inspectors from the Maputo Social Services Office visited our orphans. The first 90 minutes was spent in our office as we answered a 5‑page questionnaire concerning every aspect of our program.
National Visitors speaking with our mothers. 100°F/37°C temps made staying in the shade a necessity.
Then off to the houses we went, where they inspected our homes. They complimented the mothers on their dedication to the children, and encouraged them to continue teaching these vulnerable little ones all that any mother would teach them.
GILDA, our Head Mother for houses 6 and 7, assured the inspectors that these infants and children were loved and cared for as if they birthed them themselves.
THANKS TO YOUR LOVING KINDNESS, all 57 children in our homes have what is needed to grow up healthy and strong.
