"The 25 orphan children who call Kidron Orphanage their home need your help. These three to 15-year-olds are currently living in what is merely a classroom. However a new dormitory building is within reach. Planning permission has been granted and building plans finalised, but until the funds can be raised their new home is just a dream. By avoiding the red tape and bureaucracy to which Africa is renowned, 100 cents in every dollar will be used to build the orphanage home therefore ensuring that all donations have maximum effect."
