Street Children India
Dear Don,
Thank you for the clothes that you have sent though Carol. I received clothes and gave them to the children that live in small huts and by Road side.
Please find the attachment of the Pictures with the kids wearing them.
The T- Shirts and trousers are useful. But the inner skirts are not more often used by the children. But we have given them to Leprosy people. Sister Carol has taken some pictures there and she told me that she will send that pictures.
Ones again thank you so much for you help for these children.
We request you to help for their education and food.

Hey Don
How are things? Back in Dar es Salaam, arrived back yesterday late
afternoon, beween Thursday last week and Wednesday this week we spent a
 week in a village where the Mary and Johnathan have built the school
for the young children of the village. We had a good time a little
hairy at times with all the thunder, and animals the village is right
in the middle of the Jungle very difficult to get too, amazing
experience and insight into local village life and how difficult there
lives must be to cope with quite adverse circumstances but they manage
with help and progress is being made especially in the lives of the
young children. I'll let you know more when I see you as I'm sure
Melanie will- anyhow hope everything is going well, look forward to seeing you soon.

Greetings from Tanzania.
 Well,. Ive just come back from a 2 day road journey .  Mary, Vivienne, Pia, and Dennis, our driver, went the  1000 kilomenters, to Ngonga village, in Keyela District, to see the wonderful work Mary is doing down there. The school is completed there, right in the jungle clearing. There are 130, children attending the little Watoto Weto, (our children, in Swahelli), School, that other wise would have no education at all .It is in the heart of the jungle, and really surprised me, what Mary,and her co-workers have achieved, in only 3 years.
 We gave out mosqito nets to all the children, who attend the school. I was able to speak in the school,and play games, and sing songs with the beautiful children, when I gave the education supplies, and the toys.We were in the heart of the jungle with the aids orphans, and the local village people. . It was the most amazing trip, Ive ever been on, we saw elephants,zebra, and girraffes, on the way down.
 We were on the National TV with,MP, Mr Harrison Makembe, who is the Local MP for Keyela District. He brought the President down, because he found out about corruption. We were in his village, when he came to visit his relatives. There was a wonderful celebration,which we were invited to attend, but his life was under threat, and there was a lot of security, as well asmedia attention.   He loves what Mary is doing in his village of Ngonga, Kyela District.
Now w ve only days to go, till we return. We ve been so busy, and done a lot of traveling accross the mountains, and the Serengeti.
Will be home soon
Love to all
Ngonga, Kenya, Kyela,
