Who is Mama Bandelengue?
Mama Bandelengue 2011
A lot has happened since David and I met Mama Bandelengue and her children Guinea/West Africa in 2008: Thanks to your donations, 20 orphans are now permanently provided with basic needs.
We would like to thank you for your loyal support on behalf of Mama Bandelengue and her children.
Nevertheless, there is still much to do. Therefore, we would like to reach as many friends and acquaintances as possible with this newsletter. For those who do not know our project yet, a flyer is attached. We would be very happy to forward it to interested friends.
Now to our annual report: In 2011, David’s Uncle Paul, who is in charge of the project on site, in cooperation with nuns, has made it possible for 27 children to go to school since October this year. The children are looked after full-time, receive 3 meals a day, school uniform and material. Their home is still with Mama Bandelengue in the town of Boké. She took the children in and begged for food for them.
The total costs for school education, care and nutrition of the 27 children are about 12,-€ per child per month.
School children: 8 pre-school children, between 3-6 years, 19 primary school children, between 6-15 years, school system, care and financing: 3rd trimester = October-December / February-April / June – August (in between holidays). During school hours, a dedicated cook provides two meals a day / full-day care by the sisters. For all children, this care/care/school education is secured and made possible by donations until June 2012.
