Aylie and Andrew traveled to Mohale's Hoek, Lesotho in the summer of 2010. We worked with Sr. Juliana and the people of the St. Camillus Centre for Orphaned and Vulnerable Children for 3 weeks, and while we were there the children made some beautiful artwork. We have used images of their cut paper flowers to make note cards and buttons in the hopes of raising money to send back to Sr. Juliana and the people of St. Camillus. Please see below for donation info, and thank you for your support and interest!
