    Getting kids in Bidi Bidi prepped for playtime

    Day 299

    New Threads

    Playtime is such an important part of growing up. It’s where our imaginations flourish, when we bond with friends. But playtime at Bidi Bidi can be pretty rough and tumble. Needless to say, clothes and shoes are a little worse for wear after a long day of play in the settlement.

    Kids grow like weeds – and the combination of quick growth and rowdy playing leads to a constant need for new clothes.

    For many parents, the supply can’t quite keep up with demand.

    So we found one spot at the camp that was made just for kids – a place where parents can take their children during the day, and where they feel safe being themselves – and brought a little surprise.

    New clothes for everybody!

    We gathered up enough clothes to give every child in this center a brand new outfit.

    The children held up their gifts, tenderly handling their spiffy t-shirts and pants.

    These parents will be able to rest a little easier, knowing that their littlest loved ones are dressed and ready for the days to come. Bring on the play!

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
