Our October 2019 Calendar of HOPE photograph features a very young orphan. The image of this small girl was taken as she hung around outside a school, too young to attend but with nowhere else to go, this little one knows that education is her only chance for any kind of positive future.
Older kids were looking after her, keeping her safe, but with food and other basic resources scarce, her day to day needs are never met. We hope to see her be able to attend school in a couple of years. We hope that she makes it that far.
Such is life in the village for every orphan but for the very tiny, the risk is so much greater. With no adult supervision and no real home, every day is insurmountable. With your help, we can, one by one, undertake for the most vulnerable children like the little girl in the image. Please consider making a gift today to help us bring hope into lives that are desperate.
Antelope, like the one in this month’s calendar photograph, are majestic with amazing horns. This picture was taken in the South Luangwa National Park. The puku is a medium-sized antelope found in wet grasslands in southern Democratic Republic of Congo, Namibia, Tanzania, and Zambia. Nearly one-third of all puku are found in protected areas, zoos, and national parks due to their diminishing habitat.
