We are fortunate to have friends in both Kenya and Zambia who run health clinics which provide essential medical treatment to some very poor people - treatment they would otherwise simply not receive. In Zambia we also have the opportunity to support an orphanage which provides a home and education to over 160 children who have lost their parents mainly to HIV/AIDS.

 We know  personally the people who run the projects - they are local and understand the needs of their community. Every penny raised will go to where it is most needed.

The idea is to provide 'retail therapy' for these projects.

For example we can go shopping for:

To feed 163 children for 2 days (25 kg bag of maize)     

£8.00

Materials for one child to attend school for a term

£4.20

Test one person for HIV / AIDS    

£1.25

Treatment for 5 people living with AIDS /HIV

£10.00

Antibiotics for 10 people

£10.00

Essential post natal support for new born baby

£10.00

Vaccinations for under 5yr olds  -  measles

£0.56

polio, combined diphtheria, tetanus, hep B, meningitis

£0. 86
