At preschool we support the work of the ‘Iris Madagascar’ Mission in Madagascar. This is a Christian mission which cares primarily for children and the poor. As well as providing housing and schooling for abandoned and orphaned children, it runs a lunch program which supports children from the extended community, many of whom are malnourished. The center runs a milk program as many babies in Madagascar are starving and some die because their mothers are malnourished and do not produce enough milk. The center provides food, school fees and medical assistance for over 80 children who have a family to live with but are in such extreme poverty that the family is unable to care for even their most basic needs.
We help the Iris Madagascar Mission by fundraising, by sending parcels of unwanted children’s clothing, and providing shoeboxes of gifts for Christmas.
We believe that our preschool children will benefit from learning about the lives of children in another part of the world and with a different culture. More details about Iris Madagascar can be found at http://irismadagascar.org/
