The Dream Home has Running Water!

Thanks to your support, the Dream Home children now have running water!  The funds from this project helped purchase a water tank, connect the well to the tank and install the solar pump. 

This water supply will enhance cleanliness, providing better health and sanitation for the kids. This is a benefit that all children should enjoy and we are thankful that together we made this a reality.

You can see Felicia using the new water pump in this video. 

 Thanks so much for helping bring running water to the Dream Home!

Dream Home Kids Have New Clothes

Thanks to your donations we were able to provide a couple of the Dream Home girls with new, custom-tailored outfits.  The girls that received an outfit were each very thankful to you.  

Kids grow as part of a natural process. The consequence of this is that they need an ongoing supply of new clothes and shoes - to fit their growing bodies.  Dorcas and Esther show their new dresses in the photos below.

Dream Home Kids Attend Summer YFC Camp

On the 17th of August 2017 fourteen Dream Home Children left the Mellon Street residence to head to Kono for the 5 day Youth for Christ Camp

They made a lot of friends. This was evident by the series of phone calls received and made by the kids in the days following the camp.

With the many challenges confronting young people, active discussions took place where the youths discussed the different angles on each topic. The youths were well equipped on how to handle these challenges.

Nutritious Meals Keep Our Children Healthy & Strong

How many times growing up did you hear your parents say,  "Eat your food, it will make you grow up big and strong" or  "You are not leaving the table until you finish all of your food".   

Most of us take our meals for granted, especially as children, but the 22 children in the Dream Home are orphans and depend on us to make sure they are getting nutritious meals.  Your generous support is making that possible.

Mabinty & Aisha Love Their New Glasses

Thanks to your support we successfully raised $350. Aisha and Mabinty now have reading glasses. 

Both girls are so grateful to the donors that covered the cost of their eye exams and glasses.  They say that they enjoy going to school more - thanks to their new glasses; now they can see the blackboard clearly without squinting or straining their eyes.  

Aisha just finished class 7 and hopes to be a Doctor when she grows up.  Mabinty just completed JSS1 (Junior Secondary School) and is working toward becoming an Accountant when she grows up.
