A Friend of Tembari Children
SATURDAY is always especial for Tembari kids. This is because some surprises would come, as usual, and such are always packed with goodies from generous donors and supporters. On Saturday, September 10, 2011, there was frenzy among the kids. Have a look to find out why.
These three kids could be the happiest among who received clothing items from the children of The Ela Murray International School (TEMIS)of Port Moresby, PNG. Beaming with pride, they pose with their new preschool uniforms.
Penny Sagembo, Tembari Co-Founder Co-President, stands by the of the Tembari office as she distributes donated clothing items to the Tembari beneficiary children. The donation came from the children of The Ela Murray International School (TEMIS) in Port Moresby, PNG. The PMIS children also donated K900 (more than US$300)to Tembari to pay for the cost of the day care center's electric consumption. The funds to buy the clothing items and the cash donation were raised from the children's daily school pocket money, according to Ms Narelle Levey, who coordinated the children's donation.
