Orphanage needs Albertans' help

From 660 News, Calgary, Alberta, CANADA
By Todd Kaufman

A group of caring Albertans are busy trying to make a difference for an orphanage in Africa.
The group is attempting to fill a huge shipping container with life's necessities for the children to be shipped over to Mwanza in the spring and they desperately need Albertans' help.

The Starehe Children's Home in Mwanza, Tanzania is run by Ron and Loudell Posein from Barrhead, Alberta.

Everything from helping hands, financial support and everyday items such as baby soap, clothing and farm equipment are needed.

One of the volunteers, Bev Morgan tells 660News on Sunday, the children are so appreciative with even the simplest things.

For more information or if you want to help - you can go to their website at or call 403-256-1949 or 403-399-2061.
