Orphaned children in Africa often live alone with no adults to care for them. To them, a roof over their heads would be a luxury. Providing a shelter kit with a tarp, tools, sleeping mats and blankets, a lantern, a mosquito net, and a stove helps give a child-headed household a sense of home and […]
