We are working on three different projects at the orphanage right now. I call them Earth, Wind, and Water. ‘Wind’ is almost finished. It started when we visited the new sleeping quarters for twenty-four girls. When I walked in I could hardly breathe because of the unbearable temperature in the rooms. As I looked up, I saw that the ceiling was just a tin roof. You could not touch it without burning your hands. The sun relentlessly scorched the tin plates and made the rooms feel like a hundred degrees. In my opinion it was impossible to have a good night’s sleep.
A few calls, and I was able to fully finance the ‘ Wind ‘ project. I bought eleven ceiling fans and hardware to hang them safely. They are now quietly humming….
It was a small project with a big impact and it took about a week from start to finish. Thanks to donations from Susan and Myron McCumber, Truus Jansen, Mathieu Delarue , Bill Baker, Danielle and me. The kids can breathe a little easier now.
