This is "the poor place". It is hard
to tell, but you can see the peeling paint.
aid trip in January took us to three boarding homes for older children.
Two had sewing programs for the kids. One place, which we call the "poor
was trying to start a sewing program. These programs are very, very important.
The kids really need to learn skills. When my friend, Lou, returned this
June to adopt two girls we met on the trip, I sent a package of sewing
supplies for them to begin their sewing program. Lou said the workers there
cried and cried. They couldn't believe someone remembered them, thought
of them, and wanted to help them. I will continue to send supplies to them
as I can. I would love for them to have rotary cutters and mats!
One of the children at the Kongdapoga Children's Home made this great quilt, and had it on their bed.
