For the past two years we have worked alongside Anchor Your Life to help meet physical needs of children in South Africa and Lesotho. Anchor Your Life purchases the items for the packs, Up with Down’s learners assemble the packs and along with an American team we delivered the packs to children in Pacaltsdorp, South Africa and Lesotho. In June 2014, we delivered 250 bags full of blankets, hats, scarves, and gloves to help keep them warm as they face winter temperatures below freezing.
Immediately, the children (and adults) pulled out their new gifts and wrapped themselves in their new belongings.
