The Necessities of Life

Without parents and with very little support, The Candles struggle to obtain the very necessities of life.  There is not adequate food in the community, the water supply is not clean, and medical attention is difficult to get and expensive.

It really has changed their lives now that we can support them with food which means more regular and more nutritious meals. They also have books and school uniforms so they can go to classes. And very importantly they can access medical care as 7 of the cousins have tested HIV positive from birth. We are told that The Candles have shiny, smiley faces and a happy outlook on life. As one of our friends says, “Help is beautiful. Hope is necessary. Caring is everything.”


  1. I’m looking forward to hearing more about what’s happening in their community.

    • We have new on the village on the way!
