AAA Support for Chisamba Settlement Village

African Aids Angels in Victoria, BC have been supporting our work for many years now. We are very grateful for their continuing assistance!  Whilst the group takes a particular interest in the welfare of the children at St Nicholas Orphanage, they also provide support to other Makeni Centre projects.

I have recently received these pictures from Joe Silwenga of Chisamba Settlement Village, where AAA also has been assisting with its Input Support Project.

The captions also come from Mr Silwenga.

A picture of a widow a beneficiary from AAA Input
Support Project, in her field of maize gathered in heaps before harvesting. She
explained that because she is just alone that is why her maize was still in the
field and she has not prepared a traditional barn to store her maize in.
