Most of us think about what we need from the grocery store and what we are making for dinner at night, but we do not have to worry about being able to eat today.
Thanks to your generous support, now the Dream Home children do not have to worry about whether they get to eat today either. Your donations have covered nutritious meals for the Dream Home children this spring.
Eating nutritious meals will allow these 22-orphaned children to grow up healthy and strong. The items purchased are from the five main food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods - meats, fish, etc., and dairy.
Thanks to your support, they are continuing to grow each day into healthy adults. Thank you again for making a difference in the Dream Home children’s lives.
Thank you for your support that is helping us meet the ongoing medical needs of 22 growing children.
Over the past 2 months, your donated funds have helped cover the costs of medication and treatment for a range of illnesses including fever, rash, general body pain, malaria, headaches and infection. The kids deeply appreciate your kind assistance that helped bring quick relief and medical attention. Our part-time nurse continues to provide excellent, skilled care for the kids.
We are keeping a log of reported illnesses and remedies / medication to ensure we can observe trends and better take care of the kids.
Thanks so much for being a part of our "village" and helping to keep the dreams of the Ebola orphans alive!
We send warm greetings to you from the Dream Home children - who are doing well. They are growing and studying hard in school. Each month brings a new adventure, challenge and milestone for them
In November, Susan, Felicia and Aminata's birthdays were celebrated with a special birthday dinner and party at the Dream Home. Your support helps to provide a birthday party each month. With 22 kids, there is never a dull moment.
On December 27th, there was a holiday party for the Dream Home children and the neighboring children. Over 240 kids were at the celebration. YOU helped to make their holiday bright, cheerful and special!
We couldn't provide for these deserving children without the generous support of donors like you. You are helping them dream again. We greatly appreciate your on-going support. Thanks to you these children have a very bright future.
Freetown, where the Dream Home is located, receives a lot of rainfall - with high humidity. The discolored and faded outside walls of the Dream Home were in need of a fresh coat of paint. You can see this in one of the group photos in this report.
Since the last report, this project has raised $50. These funds were used towards repainting the entire Dream Home at a total cost of around $375 - using a weathershield oil paint.
This paint refresh came at a great time as we were able to do this before the Christmas party - held on December 27th. The building looked fresh and bright as you can see in the party photos.
Thanks so much for helping to make the building look bright and fresh - uplifting the look and spirits of the kids
We deeply appreciate your support as we work together towards providing a home for these deserving kids.
Through your support, we have moved one step closer to purchasing a bus for the Dream Home. At this point, we have not raised adequate funds to get a bus, but every bit helps us get closer to the goal.
We plan to continue working to raise the necessary funds to assist in the purchase of a 25-30 seat bus for the Dream Home. So if you have any suggestions on what we could do - please do not hesitate to get in touch.
More than ever - we realize that we need a bus their ongoing travel needs. In order for the Dream Home children to travel anywhere as a group, a bus must be rented. The involved costs and logistics have limited our group activities.
The purchase of a bus will make travel so much easier and safer - enabling us to experience additional and richer extra-curricular activities together - such as going on field trips etc.
Thank you again for your support. We couldn't do what we do without you!
