GENERAL INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
If you have decided to help our child or children, here is some general information.
The money you send is only allocated to children. It pays for pay tuition fees and basic needs such as uniforms – each school has a different uniform. Furthermore, school shoes and shoe cleaners, laundry soap, so that children learn to care for their belongings, toiletries and school supplies. Basic medical care, food, bed linen, etc. are also included in the amount.
Mr. Pergl goes to Kenya once a year to see the children and brings them letters from you, their sponsors. You will always be informed about his trip in advance by email. You can then send letters for your children to the endowment fund address. Please understand that it is better to send letters by mail rather than by email. The cost of printing is quite high for such a number and some photos of you and your family can be added to the envelope, which will surely please the children. Another way to keep communicating with children during the year is a so called e-letter. Just send your letter to email@example.com and it will be forwarded to your child in Kenya. As soon as they the children write back, their letters return to us at the endowment fund, from where we will forward them to your email. For reasons of the law, which we must obey, it is not possible to maintain direct communication with the children, the correspondence must always go through the OMDC endowment fund. The children remain in the Fund until they graduate from high school. Adoption, therefore, does not end at the age of 18, as many children started school at a later age. After a mutual agreement it is then possible to cooperate even during university studies.
In case you would like to go to Kenya together with Mr. Pergl to visit your child and also the others, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. It is possible after an individual agreement with Mr. Pergl. Every extra helping hand counts, and it would make the children happy. However, we would like to point out that this journey would be on your own expense, unfortunately it is not possible to sponsor the visit from our side.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com or call +420 737 835 141.
