As has become customary on our Africa trips we pay a visit to at least one orphanage. HIV and AIDS is still a very big issue in Africa and orphanages are overflowing with kids who’s parents have fallen victim to this epidemic. What little SMI can do to bring a little cheer into these kids lives we feel very humbled and honored to be able to do. Sarah MacDonald and Steve Schumm joined SMI guides April Mayhew and Kurt Wedberg for this visit. As we did with our visit in February we brought with us hand made dolls courtesy of Cindy Simon and a group of talented ladies who sew these to distribute to kids all over the world. A big thank you to Cindy and all the ladies who help make possible delivering these special dollies to the kids.
A few pictures are below. The entire photo gallery including some video can be found here:
Nice touch guys. Shoes and dolls mean everything to someone who has nothing. God bless you guys and Ms. Simon for being good samaritans.
