If anyone has items they would like to donate to a Maputo Orphanage, Casa da Criança Madre Maria Clara accepts books, school items, clothes, or other objects (see below) all year round.
Contact them at Protected content or Protected content make a contribution.
From their website: Books: there is a mini-library in the orphanage and the girls love reading. Do you have any books that you don't use anymore? Maybe you could donate them to our children. School objects: Notebooks, pencils, rubbers, pens, dictionaries, suitcases, rulers.... Clothes: It is impressive to see the poor clothes that they have. These girls are aged between 1 and 18 years old. Unfortunately, clothes are a luxury good of for these children. Other objects: toys, games, towels, bed sheets.... If you need more information, please contact us.
It's also possible to directly "godfather/godmother"/sponsor one of the Protected content under the age of 18 through the orphanage's website. See Protected content for more information.
