The plan for Iris Madagascar is to build a Baby House called Tranon'ny Harena Sarobidy (House of the Precious Treasure). It will take in abandoned babies, orphans and also begin to take in street children and homeless families. They will be given a loving home and raised to know what precious treasures they really are, each one unique and with a special purpose in life.
Iris Madagascar is an Iris base which is currently in the early stages of development and will be the first base in Madagascar. Madagascar is an extremely beautiful island about 400km (250 miles) off the coast of Mozambique. It has an abundance of unique wildlife and plants, and many beautiful sights including rainforest, coast and mountains. Madagascar is also one of the poorest countries in the world, and is currently undergoing a political crisis. At the moment (according to the world banks), it is ranked as one of the poorest countries in the world. The population is 20 million and 85% of that population live on less than $2 a day. Sadly 1:10 children die before they reach 5 years old.
