I asked for, and just received, a list from Desalegn that details the types of things FOVC and the orphans there most desperately need at this time. Here it is!
  • clothes (gently used or new, boys & girls)
  • shoes
  • sneakers
  • jackets & sweaters
  • skirts
  • jeans
  • socks
  • underwear (new)
  • towels
  • watches
  • earrings, necklaces
  • hair do-dads
  • headbands
  • deoderant
  • soap
  • shampoo, conditioner
  • body lotion
  • toothbrushes, toothpaste
  • educational games for little children
  • first aid kits
  • school supplies
  • notebooks
  • markers, pencils, pens, crayons,
  • mathematical sets (flash cards?)
  • books for library
  • office supplies
  • printers (very important)
  • printer inks for HP Laser Jet 1010 and 1005 series
  • photo copy machine (very important)
  • laminating machine (very important)
  • digital video camera (very important)
  • digital camera
  • rechargeable batteries (AA type with 220v charger)
  • AA batteries for digital cameras
  • another laptop and desktop computers for office use
  • blankets (can be bought in Ethiopia)

It's a big list, but it should be easy for Team Tasfa to gather lots and lots of these items. Please let me know if you can help! If we all do a little bit, we can make a HUGE difference!

with so much love,
