Lebala Camp

    Pack for a Purpose does not condone visiting orphanages, as this can often lead to negative impacts on children. The accommodation or tour company working with the orphanage will deliver the supplies in a coordinated and respectful way so that the children can benefit from them. Your generosity is not diminished because you do not interact with the children.


    Mummy’s Angels is a project based in Maun to support less-fortunate mothers and their newborns who do not have financial or family support. Mummy’s Angels was started in April 2018 voluntarily by three ladies who have lived in Maun for some years and are familiar with the plight that these ladies face. Mummy’s Angels started out donating their children’s pre-loved clothes and baby essentials to these ladies in need. Our guests are invited to bring similar items with them to donate. As lead sponsor, Kwando Safaris will match every guest donation with a similar item.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of October 24, 2020

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
