Donations of School supplies for Lusaka, Zambia
Deadline for donations extended to end of November 2013!

We have an opportunity to send a container with supplies, for use by the St. Nicholas orphanage children that we support through AAA, and for the adjoining school (all Grades) that the orphans (and many community children) attend. Both the orphanage and school are situated at Makeni Ecumenical Centre, Lusaka.

We need good, new or nearly new:

  • school supplies
  • linens such as towels, sheets, kitchen cloths, blankets
  • clothing for children and young adults
  • toiletries
  • non-breakable kitchen items (non-electronic)
  • sports equipment and toys
  • simple music instruments (e.g recorders)
You can e-mail me at

or simply drop off items at 

397 Arnold Ave., Victoria BC (you can leave non-sealed /boxed items on our veranda). Please be respectful regarding the need for new or items in good condition, and the list above.

Please drop off items by the end of November 2013.

We would like to thank Mrs. Joan Mann for permitting us space in their large container, destined for their project in Southern Zambia.

Later, we may call for help packing and moving items!

Thank you!

The Dils, for AAA board
