What better way to celebrate Valentine ’s Day than to show love to others?
This past weekend KEEP continued its efforts to provide some children with “Back-To-School” bags. Like before, each bag contained notebooks, pencils, sharpeners, erasers, crayons. We also got a donation of Geometry sets, so those went in the bags of kids in grades 4-6.
Also, this time around, we decided to reach out to orphanages and families that have been directly affected by Ebola-either by losing their parents or guardians.
Our first stop was at the Love A Child orphanage on the Robertsfield Highway. Mother Rebecca Wreh runs the Orphanage (lady in black and red t-shirt)
32 children at this orphanage received bags with supplies. we managed to get a few to pose with us.
We later went to the Eluwo Orphanage in Ceasar’s village (Rehab road).
The kids there were caught unaware by the visit and were super excited that we took book bags for them. The home has a backyard garden where they grow cabbages, corn, pepper, etc.
Mother Eleanor Wuo was so appreciative that she insisted giving us cabbage from the home’s backyard garden. I was so touched!
We also made a visit to several homes in the Banjor Community where many children in that area lost their parents to Ebola.
Thanks to all who have and continue to support our various efforts.
Previously on January 31 we give out over 150 bags to children in the Baptist Seminary Blocks B&C communities.
