Orphans in the Wild

Mufundi

Conservative estimates suggest that over 8% of the population of Tanzania (over 1.5m people) are affected by HIV/AIDS. However figures in Mufindi are the highest in Tanzania at around 35%, due to migrant tea labour. Children are the biggest casualties of this 'epidemic', either being infected from birth or losing their parents to the disease. In a country where the average income is around $30 a month, the extended family struggles to take these children in.

The Fox family who run the Mufindi Tea Estate in the Mufindi Highlands established Orphans in the Wild to build a village for these unfortunate children. Once completed, the village will care for around 70 local children in a family environment. As it stands at the moment, a home has already been built for 12 children who are cared for by their house mothers, Lina and Eva. It is already a great progress.

It has been our great pleasure and honour to help this project grow; from seeing the ground cleared to the first children moving into their new homes.
