Buhangija Orphanage in Shinyanga, Tanzania is a special orphanage that houses albino children and orphans. Buhangija offers the children protection from the vicious albino killings that take place in Tanzania everyday. The orphanage is in need of clothes, food and medicine supplies. Many people have stepped in and helped out this year, especially Telri's mom, Amanda. She has organised teachers, caregivers for the babies, classrooms, bedding, food, clothes, medicine and shade, which is vital for these children. Amanda also makes toys for the children from recycled products and for Christmas 2014 she managed to throw a big Christmas party. There was dancing, sweets, food and a small gift for each child.
 
We wanted to raise funds to buy the very young kids and babies under the age of three some toys, art supplies and musical instruments. So we painted these birdies to help raise the money. Each birdie is hand painted with gouache and ink on an A6 artist paper. They are all originals and were sold for R200 each.
