    Project #1

    Borite Primary School serves approximately 450 children from ages 5 through 15 years old who come from low- or no-income families.

    Project #2

    The Hospice in Mogwase is very small and can accommodate a total of 16 patients at a time. Most of the patients are treated as out-patients, and receive treatment daily by a small but very dedicated staff. Patients range from very young to the elderly. Due to illness, very few can work or feed their families, so the hospice looks after these needs as well. One of the ways the hospice does this is by harvesting food from a small vegetable garden.

    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. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    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.
