Tommy, 5, could not wait to find out what was in the backpack he received from a Save the Children donation on Monday 25, October. As he was showing off his school materials to his dad, he got a surprise. Something he sees around and has always wondered what it was for–a ruler.

Meet Abdul, 7 who got a new backpack the same colour as his old bag that was burnt in a fire at Spain Community, Kroobay on September 19. He named his old bag “powerful” because of the drawings on it. He was thrilled to get his new backpack because “it looks and feels just the same."
