Waiting for the bell
Most of the children you see on our website live close enough to our feeding or community centres to benefit from regular meals and care. These children are generally in a far better situation than those who live far from the centres, in shanty towns like Kliptown.
Life is grim for these children. They play in dusty or muddy streets, there is no grass or trees to sit under, and they have little running water or sanitation.
But what they do have is hope!
The highlight of their day is when the Malebese truck pulls into view, with the driver ringing a bell to signal that the food has arrived.
The children form a queue to collect their peanut butter sandwich and cup of milk – and then sit down right there at the side of the road to tuck in.
Thank you for helping us to reach children in far flung communities.
