Little Heaven

Started 15/07/03
Project for 45 Hiv orphans
Sponsored by vzw Amaresh and the Siddartha Clothing Shop

Many children are not accepted in their family because their father or their mother passed away due to HIV. Their surrounding is afraid of getting infected. So, where should/could these orphans go?

We started a reception centre for 30 aids orphans between 4 and 10 years old. A permanent team takes care of the well-being of these children day and night, seven days a week. After 3 years it became evident that the eldest needed separate consideration, attention and that they had to help with the daily chores in our home.

It is hard and confronting when they cling to you and say clearly: “Do never ever abandon me!

We want to offer them a little bit of heaven now, before they go to the “big heaven”.
