Continuing funds are needed to feed each child. The facility needs better accommodation, transport and medical. It costs $300 per week to make sure 10 orphans have very basic needs met. It costs $300 per month for a teacher. To have a nurse and assistant costs $700 per month. Plus transport, equipment and continued development.
