Children's centre, South Africa
In Tebogo's area, many children were orphans because of HIV and AIDS.
At age 11 he was living alone with his younger brother and nobody could locate their parents. He was going to sleep hungry every day, collapsing at school and getting thinner and thinner. Some days he considered taking his own life.
Tebogo and his brother were just two of more than 70 vulnerable children who were helped by the drop-in centre. They received school uniforms, nutritious food, and could talk to caring adults. Their teachers saw big improvements.
Gifts made in Wills provided the start-up capital for the children's centre and provided resources like a water tank for the garden and training for the centre’s staff.
