Welcome to the ACC sponsorship E-News

In this issue we would like to focus on the orphanage we support in Cochabamba Bolivia  



Salomón Klein is an orphanage situated in Cochabamba, in the heart of Bolivia. It is home to 150 babies and small children, abandoned and at risk, many of whom have special needs. Salomon Klein is a not for profit organisation that provides shelter, care and a safe environment to children and women who live on the streets in Cochabamba.

During the recent global financial crisis, much of the aid that was being delivered to orphanages in developing nations was withdrawn by the World Bank. 
Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in Latin America with two thirds of the population living in poverty.  Women and children are the most vulnerable groups in society which is reflected by the number of infants and children that are abandoned each year and require shelter and care in homes such as Salomón Klein.  

Salomón Klein is in desperate need of funding to provide the children with improved health care, nutrition, access to education, and emotional support. They are working hard so they do not have to turn the home back to the State. Your sponsorship ensures that the children's fundamental needs can be met; allowing staff and volunteers more time to focus on their developmental and emotional needs.  As a sponsor you will receive photos, profiles and regular updates on the progress of some of the children at Salomón Klein.

A special thank you to the team @ Curves West Ryde
for their ongoing support


Curves West Ryde has supported Salomon Klein ever since the owner's daughter, Anna, spent a year there as a volunteer.  While she was there we raised funds which we sent to her to buy milk for the babies, as the local budget did not stretch to the special milks that some of the children needed, nor indeed to the quantities of regular milk that they needed.  That was in 2008.  Since then we have had a Christmas fundraiser each year whereby members give a donation in exchange for cutting out and decorating a hand.  From these we fashion our annual Christmas tree.  Our fundraiser is called "Let your Hands Reach Around the World".  We usually put up a map showing where Cochabamba is located and put out a folder displaying the photos that Anna send back in 2008 with funny little anecdotes about some of the babies and their personalities.  Goodness, the 'babies' must be at least 6 years old by now and we do wish that we had recent photos of them and to know where they all are! There has always been keen interest in those particular children.  The members love this time of the year and we are happy to be able to send on our donations now via Ricky at ACC.  Thank you ACC for your valuable work to support Salomon Klein, a place that is special to our hearts. 

Linda, Deb, Nina, India, Sam and Mila
