During our 3 month stay in Madagascar we started up a new project which will help us be partly become a little more autosufficient on site. With the extra space we have on the clinic’s plot, and the knowledge of our team on site, we have started reproducing chickens. This provides chickens (and eggs) for the food-packages distributed to our families as well as food for the orphanage. All eggs and chickens sold contribute to financing medication needed at the clinic. Here some impressions:
Here the first impressions of our volunteer Pamela with La Vision in Fort Dauphin. She is loving it and so are the kids 🙂
Finally the big day has arrived. After many discussions and lots and lots of paper work the container to Madagascar has been loaded today and will be shipped this week. Thank you to everyone for your generous donations! We will keep you posted when it arrives safely in Fort Dauphin.
Thanks to the donations collected at this year’s Christmas Markets we were able to organize a Christmas Celebration in Fort Dauphin for all the people in need that receive help from La Vision. Everyone helped with the preparations and had a wonderful time. We thank you all for your support as without it all this would not have been possible. La Vision wishes you a very happy and healthy new year!

Day 9 of our Madagascar trip:
This afternoon we could return the repaired wheelchairs to their grateful owners. Thanks to our local team’s great work the wheelchairs look like they were new and work again.
Here are some pictures of the “new” refurbished old wheelchairs:
Still day 6 of our Madagascar trip:
In the afternoon we welcomed a group of handicapped people on our clinic’s site. Each one tried out different walking aids or wheelchairs and were then given the one that they felt most comfortable with.
Some of them came with wheelchairs that were broken but could be repaired. So we kept them to repair and can hopefully return them soon as good as new.
Here photos of today’s distribution:
Thank you to our La Vision Team on site for organizing this event. The kids from the orphanage, the people from the handicaped home, all helpers and their families and everyone invited had a great time. The food was deliciuos and the kids enjoyed their goodies under the Christmas tree. What a great start to a hopefully healthy and successful new year 2014.
