Children Home

Some of the bedsheets and blankets
Some food stuff

Church volunteer(in red shirt) providing tuition
Today we visited a new children home, which was started about a year ago in Air Itam. It houses 6 children, who are either orphaned or comes from single-parent families. The home provides them with shelter, takes care of their education, ensures that they attend schools and gives them helps in terms of tuitions. The aim is using education to help these children to break the poverty cycle.

We bought 10 blankets, 10 single size bedsheets, some biscuits and milo. It was a nice place and they even encourage the children to be responsible and caring by adopting a pet dog, named Bobo . The volunteer who stays there, Sharon is very friendly and helpful. We hope to return to the home to help them again.
