In the last month, a total of five orphaned newborn baby girls have come into Nkoaranga orphanage - that's no joke, on top of 22 other children! This means we now have 27 kids total, 8 under a year old. Normally, the orphanage is staffed by just two to three mamas at any given time, plus volunteers - however, with this many newborns, that's just impossible. That's why we have been paying every day for one or two extra mamas to come in and focus full time on the tiny ones, as part of our one-to-one care program (although in this case, I guess it's more like a two-to-five program!). Our goal is to raise enough to continue to pay two extra mamas to come in every day for the next two months. It costs about $6/day for each staff member, which adds up to $800 for 60 days. Just $800 to make sure Hope, Irene, Joanita, Lulu, and Faraja all survive. Please, help these gorgeous girls to grow up healthy and happy by giving them the best possible start in life!
