We started the day very early, as we needed to clean and replace all of the beds before the curious children returned from school. The day started slow, as the mattress delivery was delayed because they had to find a truck to load the 20 mattresses onto. Around 12:30 we received a call asking us to pick them up from the highway, which is only a 10 minute walk from the orphanage. We walked to the truck, guided them along the beautifully bumpy dirt roads, and unloaded the mattresses within minutes. This is where we started to place and dress the mattresses before the children showed up.
After tagging the beds and putting the childrens names on the frames, we showed them their new rooms with nice proper beds, new blankets, and improved hygiene conditions.
At this stage the day was almost over; we did a couple more loads of laundry, and ended our day with some home made banana chapati.
Thats all for today! And remember any donations are welcomed and appreciated!
