Community Involvement at Makalali Research & Endangered Species Projects

The Holy Family Orphanage provides a home for children affected by HIV.  We visit them every two to three weeks and spend some time playing with the children.  They love the attention and it is a wonderful feeling to be able to bring a smile to their faces with just a hug.  As well as basic moral support, we also support them with some provisions.  We will often buy them some food and special treats when we visit, and volunteers are asked for a small donation to cover this.  Volunteers are also welcome to bring other things with them, or to buy them locally.  The things most needed are as follows;

- Educational toys

- Stationary

- Crayons, drawing books, pens, pencils, paints etc.

- Educational posters

- Medical kits

If you would like to know more about the orphanage please visit their website to see the amazing work that is being done there at Holy Family Care Center.
