My daughter has returned to Tanzania to volunteer once again with Tuleeni Orphanage.  As with her last trip I created Buddies for the dear children in the Upendo orphanage. They have so little over there and many of the children have never had a ‘toy’ or ‘doll’ of their own.  The Buddies (with legs) were created out of colourful and patterned fabrics and filled with toy stuffing ( so they could be hand-washed if necessary).


My daughter sent these pictures today and now I’m speechless!

Buddy in the cot

This little girl walked quickly away to her cot when she had been given her ‘Buddy’.  She couldn’t wait to be alone with her/him. The way she tenderly looks at her Buddy is heart warming.
