Shelter

CHF1.00Price

The homeless children under the care of mydirectcharity.org are from rural areas. They walk around 6 hours from their remote villages to come along and beg in the city of Antsirabe. The number of children has gradually grew to 65 since we started providing help in the city of Antsirabe. Shelter is an important and rather urgent help as in winter, the temperature drops to 4 deg celcius on the streets of Antsirabe, but even more important as Shelter allows to consolidate our other 4 areas as Food, Clothing, Health and Education all in one place under one roof. Last winter was an eye opener for our team when we realised the children were keeping warm using body warmth stacking together on the pavements of shops and other buildings that they can find.

In view of the cold winter in Madagascar, mydirectcharity.org is looking to rent a shelter for accommodating 65 homeless kids together with some of their parents. The shelter will be used to provide for a boys and a girls dormitories, a separate room for the selected parents, a shower and toilet facilities and a hall for education purposes. The shelter costs CHF 200 to rent per month and we are looking for funds to sustain the management and operation of the shelter. Your help will be much appreciated.
