BENEFITING: SPANDA INC
The cost per child for 4 weeks of nutritional treatment is a mere $35.00!. Buy a doll and honor the special people in your life: moms, dads, teachers or friends, while supporting the Spanda malnutrition program.
What am I adopting?
A Cedar Rapids volunteer, Mary Uthe, and many others continuously hand crafts knitted dolls to be adopted by a donor and given to a child being treated for malnutrition and living in a impoverished country. These dolls are known as Duduza Dolls-- “Duduza” is a word for “comfort”.
How does it work?
The doll is given a name by its adoptive parent then distributed to a child in the clinic areas sponsored by Spanda Inc. A certificate with a picture of the child receiving his or her doll will be given to the adoptive parent.
Where is my money going?
A nutrition therapy treatment goes for four weeks (two to three times a day) at a cost of $35 per child. The doll will be distributed to poverty stricken children and the donation will rehabilitate a malnourished child for 4 weeks with our ready-to-use-therapeutic food (RUTF) program.
**The form available on our website gives us your contact information and the name you have designated for your Angel of Comfort Doll. A doll will be picked out by our volunteers (All dolls are unique and none are the same) and will be tagged with its name. They will either be shipped or personally delivered to the child. A certificate and picture will arrive in the mail showing that your gift, an angel of comfort doll was received.
