Raising Healthy Girls & Boys

The Dream Home children range from 2-17 years old and we had no medical records for any of them or any idea what immunizations they had or what they needed.  

Thanks to your contributions we have been able to start providing the needed immunizations. We have created medical records for each of the 22 children that live in the Dream Home. Having documented accurate medical records will help these children to grow up healthy and strong. 

Your support helped cover some of the costs of tests, doctor fees, travel to appointments and recommended medications.

Sardines, Spaghetti and a Cup of Hot Tea - Yum!

One of the favorite breakfast meals at the Dream Home is bread with a delicious mix of sardines and spaghetti. The kids wash this down with a hot cup of Lipton (or similar) tea.

The kids receive an extra loaf of bread - which they take to school to eat during lunch time.  

Your support is enabling us to provide breakfast and other meals for the Dream Home kids - and we are deeply grateful for your kind assistance.  Together we are providing this essential support - daily food.
