The Primary School and nursery in Mang’ula Village serves approximately 300 pupils from ages 4 through 13 years old. The pupils all come from very low income families. The main income in this area comes from small-scale farming.
Our local hospital is in need of birthing sets and equipment, basic medicines, and any related items. It is under-supplied and is unable to provide a proper medical service to its community.
Our local village consists mostly of very low income families. The main income in this area comes from small-scale farming. Any donations of clothing or other day-to-day items we take for granted would be of great assistance here.
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.
