Moving In!

The children have finally moved into the new orphanage! We’ve waited so long for this, and sometimes it felt like it was never going to happen… but they’re at last down there! Our two matrons and nine children slept their first night in the new building last Saturday. Since then, things have gotten more and more in order. This morning the matrons could prepare breakfast for the first time in the new kitchen. This is a lot thanks to the safari group Unique Expedition from New Zealand who helped us finish what was missing in the kitchen (shelving, gas cooker etc). I think it’s so important that the children finally have a home of their own. I was a bit afraid the change was going to be difficult for them; having to move, no longer share beds with each other, not be on the same compound as the volunteers etc.. However, the children have been nothing but excited over these changes and say that they love their new house. I want to give a huge Thank You to everyone who’s helped in making this possible. So many people have contributed in such various ways (roof, windows, doors, cash etc.). It wouldn’t have been possible without you! Thank you!
