Each to their own

When you have had nothing, even the smallest things become treasures.
That's why we see it as so important for each of our own children to have their own possessions. Unlike many other children's homes in Africa where all clothes are kept in a pile in a dormitory - making it first-up-best-dressed - our kids have their own clothes, kept in their own lockers.
Of course it is essential for health reasons that they also have their own toothbrushes, face cloths and combs.
And every comb is labelled to ensure there's no mistaking which one belongs to whom.
This time the job of making labels fell to Auntie Violet, but as you can see she wasn't short of helpers!
