Little Malawi Orphan

As I’m trying to promote the Returning Vision auction, I thought I’d add this sketch of a little Malawi orphan girl. The optometrist volunteers visited a local Orphanage, I found their photos to be very moving, to see so many young children living in the orphanage, the children looked to be enjoying their visitors, possibly they have not had many overseas visitors before. Thousands and thousands of Malawi children are growing up without one or both of their parents and this is due to HIV/aids.

Those beautiful big eyes just make you melt inside, pull on your heart strings, would be so hard to leave!
