Can you imagine living in these conditions?

These photographs sadly show something that does not make us happy…and I am sure you would feel the same, especially when I tell you that 22 young boys ( orphans) sleep every night under this roof and when it rains ( 87% of the time) they get wet including the bedding on a mud floor and illness prevails.

This building is the second of three houses used to accommodate a total of 105 orphans at the Orphanage of Hope (172 orphans come under total care and support) and this old house is sadly is in disrepair.

It needs a new roof and I have listed the cost and what is required.


WOULD YOU LIKE TO DONATE IN SOME SMALL OR LARGE WAY….IT WILL MAKE THESE CHILDREN’S LIVES MUCH MORE BEARABLE.






Funding needed Urgently……

Reroofing of second house ….
