Thank you for helping us to build the new Muvuma Orphanage
People gather daily to watch the amazing progress - which wouldn't have been possible without our supporters. But we urgently need to dig the septic pits and install the tanks before the rainy season hits in mid-October. If we don’t the children can’t move in!
There's still a lot of work to do - but by raising $6,000 now the work can be completed to the stage where the 18 children can move in before they have to leave the current 4-room rental at the end of October. When complete, the 12 bedroom, 7,000 sq. ft.orphanage will be a safe haven for 50 or more children.
The fact that the orphanage protects children with albinism adds extra urgency to the building being completed swiftly. People with albinism have little or no pigment to their skin and a small number of witch doctors exploit the old superstition that the limbs of albinistic people contain magical properties, which results in adults and children with albinism being persecuted, dismembered or killed.
