Our Sponsors are making the dream for something better come true, and we are grateful to everyone who has contributed. There have been so many people helping and giving that it would take an enormous space to list you all, and so many donations have been made anonymously as well. To all our personal donors and to our child sponsors, thank you again. We particularly thank those of you who have made a commitment to regular monthly sponsorship, we wouldn't normally name you personally unless you are happy for us to do so. The list of committed sponsors is growing, it's a good way of helping us to plan ahead and we appreciate even the smallest amount. Here is a list of our friends and sponsors, if we've missed you out it doesn't mean we've forgotten you, just that our webmaster is asleep. Just let us know and we'll add you right away.
