VOH Kitwe (Zambia) Update: Supporting Families During the Holidays

During the festive season, we learned that one of our VOH students, Ruth, was struggling because her mother was ill and her grandmother was struggling to care for her. We visited Ruth’s family at home and brought them some food, including chicken, milk, sugar, bread, butter, and mealie meal. Ruth’s family was so delighted and very grateful for the gesture shown to them by the VOH Kitwe family.

VOH Luongo (Zambia) Update: Christmas Party!

During the holidays, the VOH Luongo children and staff put together a Christmas party, which they had this past week. This is an exciting time because most of the children do not have Christmas celebrations in their homes, but thanks to VOH, they celebrated Christmas together with their teachers. They had lots of fun making these special Christmas posters for decorating!

VOH Malawi Update: Hawa’s Christmas Gift

This week at VOH Malawi Hawa had a very exciting day when she had the chance to open a Christmas gift from her sponsor. Hawa was so excited and happy to see everything in her gift. Her mum was also there with her and it was nice for them to share that moment. We would like to say a special thanks to every sponsor who sent a special Christmas message or gift to your sponsor child, it is so meaningful to the children and their families when they receive a letter or gift from you.

VOH Mongu (Zambia) Update: Thanks, Mubiana!

The Christmas holidays were a busy time here at VOH Mongu!
