I always think Christmas is a time for children. The excitement of waiting for Santa and the certain knowledge that magic really does exist in the world.
I have precious memories of Christmas morning; waking at first light to see the outline of the presents at the bottom of the bed; my brothers running into my room to show me what Santa had brought them; cartoons on the telly and mum’s home made bread fried for breakfast. I can’t imagine a child’s Christmas without feeling the warmth of being part of a family and thankfully, I never had to find out.

But for millions of children in Africa, AIDS has stripped them of that precious family childhood.
Although we can never replace what those children have lost, we can help to give them a home, a family and a better chance in life.

This month, Tenerife Magazine has teamed up with Pearly Grey Ocean Club to promote the project Ingane Yami.

The face of Africa's orphan crisis

Ingane Yami
The Restoration of Hope Ministry is a charity project which is about to commence building a Children’s Village in the Durban area of South Africa. The village, which will foster and care for orphans, will be called “Ingane Yami” (meaning ‘my child’ in the local language, Zulu)
Pearly Grey Ocean Club has been organizing charity events to raise awareness and money for this vital project including a sponsored climb of Kilimanjaro which began on the 8th December 2009.
